ABSTRACT

In Turkey which is one of the main olive producing countries in the world, in the Aegean Region some provinces are coming forth in respect of olive existence. Since Akhisar district constitutes half of the olive existence in Manisa province it was found to be worth research. In order to detect olive existence and sector improvement in Akhisar and in selected villages a face to face survey has been held among farmers. Survey results were evaluated by the SPSS programme. At the end of the evaluation it was determined that; there was an increase in lands reserved for olive growing, olive is being preffered against tobacco which is an important agricultural product, farmers are leaning towards the Domat type whose origin is in Akhisar, intensive agricultural techniques are implemented, diseases and harmful activities are at a minimum level in olive groves.
