This paper is aiming to present the concept of ‘res­our­ce po­t­en­tial aggregate of farming economies’ and trial an analysis of agriculture development units based on it. The resource potential aggregate takes into consideration the following: inter­con­nected labour, materials and land resources. As a whole functioning mechanism, they predefine the per­spectives of their own development objectively and determine its level. Quantitative estimations, such as costs (to start with) related to the economies of the farming associations, land use structure and territorial productivity, have been disclosed as methodological specificities concerning the value of resource potential aggregate. It is asserted that land resour­c­es play the leading role in the structure of resource potential aggregate (over 76 %). They are fol­l­owed by capital assets (nearly 15%), and labour resources (nearly 9%). The ‘Prychornomorskyy’, the ‘Prydni­prov­skyy’ and the Central economic units known as ‘rayons’ are characterised as keepers of the highest resource potential aggre­ga­te of economies of farming associations. North-Western and the Car­­pa­th­ian rayons show the lowest values. Meanwhile, the highest territorial producti­v­i­ty of resource potential aggregate is to be noticed in the economies of farming associations of Po­dil­s­kyy, Carpathian and Stolychnyy rayons in Ukraine.
