Abstract:
This study was prepared for performing some analyses on traditional homegardens involving animals practices located in rural areas of Isparta region and designating the priorities in the intended use of homegardens. As a result of the regression analysis, conducted for the purpose of designating the share of the cash income obtained from homegardens as well as the monetary value of the products used for household consumption upon being produced in homegardens within the annual income, the share of the income obtained from traditional homegardens in the rural areas of Isparta region was designated as 34.50%. In the land observations, the degree of importance of the contributions provided by homegardens to the locals was investigated and it was identified that the most important contribution of homegardens was fulfilling the food supply of the household, with a share of 27.89%. Other contributions include, in order of importance, food security, house requirements, corral and barn for livestock, fruit production, commercial production, aesthetics and ornamentation importance, biodiversity, habitats for wildlife, forest product production, apiculture and others.
