Abstract

Usage of diesel fuel increased in parallel with the increased usage of machines in the agricultural Sector in Turkey. Consequently, the cost of diesel fuel has taken a substantial share within the cost of agricultural products. The ongoing rising trend in diesel fuel prices forced subsidies for diesel fuel to be granted in Turkey's agricultural sector. Farmers have been granted subsidies for diesel fuel especially after the year 2000. When the subsidies for diesel fuel in the agricultural sector are compared with diesel fuel prices along with the taxes levied on the diesel fuel, it can be said that the level of subsidies for diesel fuel used in the agricultural sector are not too high. Diesel fuel is seen as a good source of income in Turkey in terms of taxation. A comparison of the price of diesel fuel in Turkey with the price of diesel fuel in other countries showed Turkey among the countries having the highest diesel fuel prices. Increasing agricultural production costs along with the decline in the prices of agricultural products in Turkey may deepen the ongoing crisis in Turkey's agricultural sector.
