Cost and profitability analysis of greenhouse eggplant production: a case study of Antalya Province, Türkiye

This study aimed to analyze the technical and economic structure of the enterprises engaged in greenhouse eggplant cultivation in the sample of Gazipaşa district of Antalya province. Based on the data obtained from the Farmer Registration System in the Gazipaşa district, it was determined that 65 farmers producing eggplant in a greenhouse should be interviewed.

The data obtained from the eggplant growers were obtained through face-to-face interviews with the farmers of the producer questionnaire developed by these researchers. As a result, it was determined that greenhouse eggplant cultivation is a substantial income-generating activity in the region, and fertilizer, marketing, seedling, and pesticide elements take the first place in variable costs.
