This paper elaborates the importance of subsidiary plots for the Russian agricultural production as well as their different impact on the social situation of the rural and urban population. It examines that households with their individual plots are the major producer of a wide assortment of agricultural products in the Russian transition period. In order to estimate the importance of these plots for the living standard in rural and urban areas some major results of household surveys carried out in 1995 in Orlov, Pskov and Rostov oblasts are presented.

The paper concludes that the role of the individual subsidiary plots in the Russian economy can hardly be overestimated.
