It is emphasized, that the characteristic features of the formation of labour market in agrarian sphere is a labour excess conjuncture, which is due to seasonal character of agricultural production, changes in the size and specialization of economic agents, low territorial and professional mobility of rural population, the declining prestige of agrarian labour and its low remuneration, deterioration of social-economic condition of labour. The process segmentation of labour market as to the age criterion is suggested. It is based on the economic-mathematical balance model of assessing the need of a separate economic district in labour resources for the agricultural sector. The developed model depends on the factors of demographic and socio-economic character that affect the amount of labour resources of the agrarian sphere.
