Abstract
The key factors of transformation of social and labour relations can include means of production development and scientific and technical progress. The robotization of agriculture is an objective process connected with the development of techniques and technology as well as with the increasing shortage of employees in this field and the necessity to increase the production efficiency. The research methods are SWOT-analysis and different methods of generalization and data processing. The analysis has shown the strengths of transformation of social and labour relations in conditions of the robotization which include the increase of production efficiency based on growth of labour productivity, reducing injuries at work, improving of the staff working life quality. The weaknesses include inequality and discrimination of the agricultural employees, increase in labour intensity with the growth of sensory loads, workers resistance to robotization processes. There are opportunities to create additional working places in hi-tech sector including programming, production of components for robots, appearance of new jobs connected with using of robotics in agriculture. It should be noted that modern generation of employees are focused on digital technologies, so robotization of agriculture will promote attractiveness of this branch for employees. The main threats can possibly be connected with the increase of unemployment because of robotization. It is possible to predict an increase in the polarization of labour in the agricultural sector of economics. The research results can be used by executive agencies while developing programmes of innovative agricultural development and technical modernization of the branch.
