This study utilized a Bayesian ordered probit formulation and ten years (2001-2010) of farm level data, obtained from the Farm Accountancy Network, to identify factors that influence the economic viability of farms in Greece. The findings indicate that decoupled payments increase the probability of farms being classified as economically viable. Moreover, the results highlight that a transition towards horticulture and livestock production will increase the probability that farms are classified as viable. Lastly, non-viability is directly related to the age of the farm manager.
