Abstract

This study was carried out to investigate the socio-economic status of the sticked-grown tomatoes located in Erdemli district of Mersin province and to examine the annual activity results and to reveal the problems. The data used in the research were obtained from questionnaires conducted with 44 selected farms by stratified ran-dom sampling method. The data obtained is for the 2016 production period. In the enterprises, the operating area per company was 7.01 decar. In the enterprises, the average active capital per farm was calculated as 69,916 USD (62,659 USD land capital and 7,257 USD operating capital). The ratio of own capital in the passive capital was 85.22%. In the examined enterprises, the average net yield was 3,150 USD, the agricultural income was 5,483 USD, the financial profitability was 4.29% and the economic profitability was 4.39%. As a result of tomato cost analysis, the cost of tomato was determined to be below the tomato sales price. In the study, the cost of 1 kg product was calculated as 0.234 USD. The surplus supply in the time of the intensive production of tomatoes in the region of the study causes the prices to decrease. For this reason, it is necessary to try to ensure price stability by ensuring balanced distribution of the accrual during the season. (1 USD = 3.6 Turkish Liras).
