Özet

The objective of this study is to determine the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions due to fossil-based input usage during the cultivation of apple, rose and cherry in Isparta. To this end, data obtained previously via survey method have been used. Using the industry-based inputs of these products, chemical fertilizer and pesticide amounts used per unit area along with machinery usage times and fuel consumption amounts have been determined. The total energy equivalents of these amounts were determined, and the carbon dioxide emission equivalents to the used energy amounts have been calculated.
