The article concerns an evaluation of intensification costs in an agricultural enterprise. Intensification cost dynamics are evaluated in comparison with the in-kind production volume. Using unit cost, unit intensification cost, unit non-intensification cost, unit intensification differential cost, and unit differential cost as indicators, the effectiveness of intensification costs is assessed. The effectiveness is expressed through absolute and relative changes in costs and in the economic results. The said changes include production expansion effect, relative change in costs and economic results due to unit intensification cost, relative change in cost and economic results due to unit non-intensification cost, and relative change in costs and economic results due to unit cost. The individual changes are arranged into a pyramid and, after the supplementation of the change in average market price, they can be used for comprehensive appraisal. The evaluation of the dynamics of individual indicators and interrelations thereof provides an integrated view of the subject in question. As the individual alternatives are rather extensive, only the growing and constant effectiveness of intensification costs are evaluated within the article. The decreasing effectiveness of intensification costs will be discussed in a separate study.
