Abstract

 The aim of this study was to put forth production cost and profitability of enterprises engaged in fennel production in Burdur and develop suggestions in this regard. Data was obtained from 81 farmers with stratified sampling and survey methods. Fennel production area in the farms constitutes 48.2% of the total farm area and approximately half of the total gross production value of farms was obtained from fennel production. The price formation of fennel occurs in free market conditions so the change in prices will affect the incomes of the producers significantly. In order to decrease price fluctuations, marketing structure and conditions should be improved and farmers’ unions can be established and contract farming should be increased.
