Supply chain restructuring and its impact on farmers has become the subject of interest among agricultural economists. However, there have been relatively few studies trying to quantitatively asses this issue. With data from the dairy sector in Poland, we investigate factors determining farmers' participation in the modern market channel and the impact of supply-chain modernization on farm revenues. We find that joining the modern market channel is crucially dependent on access to funds and facilitated by having larger cow herds. Further, with the help of instrumental variables, it is shown that joining themodern market channel positively affects farmers' revenues.
