Fragmentation of agriculture prevents the efficient use of production factors. The aim of this study is to determine the factors which affect land fragmentation of farms in villages of Central District of Erzurum Province in 2004. Ordered logit model was used for this purpose. As a result of the study, it has been found that there is a positive relationship between tools and machinery assets which constitute the explanatory variable, the size of the enterprise, forage crop cultivation, population working in the agricultural sector and land fragments number. In addition, a negative relationship was found between arid land rental value and land fragmentation.
