Abstract: The article considers the possibility of applying the "agglomeration effect" in the management of the territorial location of individual branches (sub-sectors) of agricultural production on the example of sunflower cultivation for grain in order to increase the level of food security. The essence of agglomeration processes in rural areas and their impact on the development of the socio-economic situation of territories, the pros and cons of the presence of rural agglomerations are considered. Various models of rural agglomerations are described. The prerequisites for the emergence of rural agglomerations are highlighted, the main of which is the territorial concentration of production. The "agglomeration effect" is analyzed in conjunction with the "neighbourhood effect" and it is traced how the intensive development of the sunflower growing sub-industry turns into its extensive growth.
