Abstract

The research paper entitled "An economic analysis of energy requirements and input costs for tomato production in Turkey" was carried out examine the energy requirements of inputs and to make input/output analysis for tomato production for various farm size. As a result of the research, better benefit-cost ratio was given on the large farms. However, due to miscalculation of this ratio, line 6 as given in the original abstract "According to the benefit-cost ratio, large farms were more successful in economic performance" should be changed to "According to the benefit-cost ratio, small farms were more successful in economic performance".
