Sector Reports on Turkish Agriculture: Dairy, Wheat, Cotton, Legumes

August 2013


Sitting at the nexus of Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Turkey has long been a “gateway” country, pivotal in its role in production and trade of all goods, including agricultural products.  Moreover, as one of what are called Newly Industrialized Countries (NICs), Turkey is representative of  a class of countries that are looked to as growth engines of the global economy over the next decade.  With access to markets in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, strong public and private institutions, a growing middle class, a developing agricultural economy and an educated work force, Turkey represents an opportunity for global companies looking for investment.  Because there is potential from Turkey  for exports, imports and domestic sales on a variety of agricultural products, companies looking to participate in growth markets need to consider Turkey, but, specifics are important.  General macro information is not enough.  For this reason, the “sector studies” devised by Informa and Seres are a perfect guide for specific information on Turkish agriculture.


Dairy:  Because of its unique geography and location, Turkey has tremendous potential with respect to dairy production and exports.  And, its position relative to Europe makes it particularly well situated to service that market.  But can Turkey overcome institutional and farm structure barriers to leverage its advantages?  If so, where will the opportunities be?

Wheat:  Turkey is a significant producer, importer and exporter of wheat and wheat products.  The real long-term question is what are realistic long-term projections for Turkish wheat production and can Turkish production meet the quality and quantity expectations of the domestic market?  And given that, what type of infrastructure is needed to support future growth?

Cotton:  Turkey is a significant producer of cotton, but also imports cotton and exports finished and semi-finished cotton goods.  While competition from other crops has hurt cotton plantings, government programs, including major irrigation and infrastructure projects, has brought new areas into production.  The future trajectory of the Turkish cotton industry is a major question mark for the global cotton industry and trade.

Legumes:  Despite the fact that legumes (crops covered for this study include dry beans, chickpeas, red/green lentils, broad beans and kidney beans) are an important part of the Turkish diet, acreage devoted to these crops has experienced a long-term decline as other competing crops have expanded.  Will this continue and how will Turkey fulfill its domestic needs?  What will it take to turn acreage around, what types of investments are needed and where will they happen?
