The use of professional advice can have a positive impact on the competitiveness of the agriculture and forestry as well as the enterprises on the rural areas. In addition, it is an important determinant of the effective implementation of agricultural policy in respect of existing legal norms. The paper presents and assesses the selected proposals for changes in the farm advisory system in Poland in the context of the CAP policy for the period 2014-2020. It was found that the introduction of changes in the farm advisory system can contribute to better achievement of the objectives of this policy than in the previous programming period.
