Subject. This article deals with the issues of development of market relations in agriculture.
Objectives. The article aims to consider the research vocabulary used when describing the features of the development of the agro-industrial complex during the period of market reforms.
Methods. For the study, I used analysis and synthesis, and the methods of grouping, comparison, and generalization.
Results. The article finds that cash and raw material flows, labor and technical resources cannot be allocated on a centralized basis, as it was usually done during the emergence of the structure of the agro-industrial complex.
Conclusions. The traditional category of Agro-Industrial Complex is losing its economic relevance. For scientific observation and practical use, other generalizing categories should replace it.
