This paper presents some aspects of correlation between the production of glasshouse vegetables and the territorial consumption of such products on the home market. The territorial development and distribution of glasshouse vegetable production have been carried out on the basis of market investigations. The authors show the results of investigating the home market for glasshouse vegetables, the development of vegetable crops during the five-year period 1971–1975 and its expectations for 1976–1980.

The subject of this paper is in conformity with the directions set by the Party and State leaders for improving the market supply with vegetables and fruit and for reducing the expenses and labour required by marketing these products in Romania.

These steps were as follows:

  1. Establishing for each district the necessary quantity of glasshouse vegetables to meet the local requiremets both according to the consumption levels in the last part of the five-year period and expected needs for 1980, estimated by investigating the market throughout the country and in Bucharest. The market investigation mainly consiste in studying the consumption
