Abstract :

Agricultural support policies are implemented by using different support tools for purposes such as increasing the income level of the agricultural sector, increasing productivity and production in agriculture. Agricultural support policies in Turkey before 2001, the market price of inputs and credit support showed a weighted structure. After the Agricultural Reform Implementation Project, which started to be implemented in 2001, its effects on production were limited and new policies based on direct income supports were started to be implemented.

Rural Development Policy has an important place among the policies implemented. The purpose of the Rural Development Policy is: increasing the access of those living in rural settlements to humane living conditions, supporting the demands for change on the basis of development, discovering and reliance on their own power, ensuring justice in income distribution, increasing their income, increasing the rate of access to education and health services, protecting natural resources and the reflection of wealth to the life of the individual in the countryside.
