Çukurova Bölgesi’nde Pamuk Arz Duyarlılığının Tahmini Üzerine Bir Çalışma
[A Study on the Estimation of Supply Response of Cotton in Cukurova Region]


  • Aktas, Erkan


This paper examined the data of cotton pruduction during 1980—2002 in Çukurova region. In this study, a supply model was constructed for cotton 2002 in Çukurova region. According to the estimation of the supply model, elasticities of cotton, corn (cross elasticity), irrigation and motorin were calculated 0,56, -0,49, -0,30 and -0,90 respectively. It was also estimated in this study that average annual growth rate of yield of cotton is 1,4 according to yield model of cotton in Çukurova region. It was estimated in the result of this study that motorin price is the most effective factor in the supply of cotton in Çukurova region.Therefore, more attention should be given to motorin price when agricultural support policies for cotton farming are developed.
