In spite that the great importance of logistics in industry, business and other branches is generally acknowledged, this problem is not systematically investigated in agriculture. As a presumption of a detailed analysis, the knowledge of the volume and structure of the material flow is necessary. The authors have proposed their own methodological procedure which issues from technological indicators, published by the Ministry of Agriculture CR for individual plants and categories of animals and which makes possible a further classification of these data for enterprises with different level of farming. These published standards of the Ministry serve as basic stones and by means of their combination, the volume of material flow and its structure during one year periods is possible to calculate. The advantage of the proposed method is a fast finding out of necessary data and possibility of taking into account some specific conditions of the investigated enterprises.Keywords:
