It is valued as food mainly because it is rich in alpha and beta carotene. There are a few studies on the economics of carrot production. Konya is the most important carrot production area and takes the first position in ranking in Turkey. Therefore, the aim of this study is to determine production cost and profitability of carrot production in Konya province, Turkey.
