The spatial distribution of the human population can be well expressed as the location of the activities of this population. Among these, economic activities play a most important role as determinants of and determined by population distribution. The intention of the present study is to revise the theories explaining locational distribution of economic activities, by adjusting their assumptions to the characteristics of the contemporary environment, with the purpose of selecting the most important variables rather than augmenting their number. The present research is concerned only with agricultural production and land use and the effects that emerging locational distributions of the agricultural system may have on the regional structure of the country.
