  With this study, the overall situation of beekeeping in Eastern and possible future cases in light of the available data reveals, the problem of identifying and developing some proposals aimed. This study presents a study of the current status (During the 1991-2005 period) and 15-year trend of beekeeping in the Eastern Anatolian Region of Turkey. Study has indicated the current situation of beekeeping. At this stage, a simple proportional tables, simple index, chain index and an average annual growth rate of such analysis is used. The long-term trend analysis for the prediction of the future, the ARIMA Model Used. The 17.05% of total honey production of Turkey is produced in this region and it contains 18.33% of the total bee hives. There are a total of 4.027 villages and 841.000 beehives in the Eastern Anatolian Region producing 14.116 tons honey. Honey production per bee hive is close to the Turkish average (16.7 kg). In the 1991-2005 period, the annual average increase in the number of hives number was -2.43%; honey production decreased by -1.86% and wax production was reduced by -0.94%. According to ARMA analysis, the honey production in 2005 of 14 thousand tons, 14.6 thousand tons in 2020 would be approximately estimated. In the long term trend analysis, it was found that if honey production continues with the current techniques and information level of the farmers, no development will be achieved in honey and wax production in the long term.

  This study analysis the technical efficiency of sec crop maize growing farms in East Mediterranean region of Turkey. Data were collected from maize growing farms through a questionnaire study, carried out following the 2004-2005 growing season. The technical efficiency of maize farming was estimated using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Technical efficiency scores were calculated using an input oriented DEA and Tobit regression analysis was used to identify determinants of technical efficiency. The average land size of the farmer is 141.13 decares. The average number of persons in the farm is 4.55; the average age of farmers is 46, an average experience is 26 years and average education level is 7.29 years. Technical efficiency was calculated as 81% in farm. The results indicate that sec crop maize farmers can reduce inputs by at least 19% while remaining at the same production level. However, Technical Efficiency (TE) ranges between 41 and 100% among the sec crop maize producers in East Mediterranean region. The greatest excesses were observed in fertilizer, machinery and labor use. Factors strongly affecting the efficiency of the farmers were found to be groups of maize harvesting area.
