Determining the Factors that Affecting Confectionery Sunflower Yield: The Case of Erzurum Province
Çerezlik Ayçiçeği Verimi Üzerine Etkili Faktörlerin Belirlenmesi: Erzurum İli Örneği

Ahmet UZUNDUMLU [1] , Muhammet Emre ÖKSÜZ [2]

Objectives of this study was to determine the factors affecting the yield in confectionery sunflower production in Pasinler district of Erzurum province. In the study, the number of questionnaires was determined by using the simple random sampling method based on the main population ratios. Overall, 84 questionnaires were administered to the households of 13 villages with the highest sunflower production in the district. In order to determine the factors affecting the confectionery sunflower yield in the study, the socioeconomic and demographic factors of the producers and factor analysis coefficients for the problems encountered in confectionery sunflower production were analyzed by using the ordinary least squares method (OLS). In conclusion, as the age of the producers and the amount of chemical pesticides use increase, a yield increase in confectionery sunflower is achieved, whereas the yield decreases as the entrepreneurship problems of the family and the amount of agricultural supports increase. In order to the farms to achieve a higher level of yield and make a more conscious production, courses should be organized by universities and agricultural research institutes in areas including input use, farming techniques, and entrepreneurship. In addition, a small amount of premium support should be given to the confectionery sunflower as applied to oil sunflower.

Bu çalışmanın amacı Erzurum ilinin Pasinler ilçesinde çerezlik ayçiçeği üretiminde verim üzerine etkili olan faktörleri belirlemektir.  Çalışmada ana kitle oranlarına dayalı basit tesadüfi örnekleme yapılarak anket sayısı tespit edilmiştir. İlçede çerezlik ayçiçeği üretiminin en fazla yapıldığı13 köydeki hane halkının bireyleri örneklemeye dâhil edilerek 84 anket yapılmıştır. Çalışmada çerezlik ayçiçeği verimini etkileyen faktörleri belirleyebilmek için üreticilerin sosyo-ekonomik, demografik faktörleri ile çerezlik ayçiçeği üretiminde karşılaşılan sorunlara yönelik faktör analizi katsayıları En Küçük Kareler (EKK) yönteminde analize tabi tutulmuştur. Sonuç olarak üreticilerin yaşı ve kullanılan kimyasal ilaç miktarı arttıkça çerezlik ayçiçeğinde verim artışı sağlanırken, ailenin girişimcilik sorunları ve yapılan tarımsal desteklerin miktarı arttıkça verim azalmaktadır. İşletmelerin daha yüksek düzeyde verim elde etmesi ve daha bilinçli üretim yapmaları için üniversite ve tarımsal araştırma enstitülerince girdi kullanımı, yetiştirme teknikleri ve girişimcilik alanlarında bilgilendirme kursları düzenlenmeli ve yağlık ayçiçeğine uygulandığı gibi çerezlik ayçiçeğine de küçük miktarda da prim desteği verilmelidir.
