Planning of Greenhouse Vegetable Enterprises through Game Theory Approach in Mersin Province

Osman Uysal [1] , Ufuk Gültekin [2]


The aim of this study was to plan the enterprises which apply greenhouse vegetable farming in Mersin province by Game Theory (GT) approach. The main material of this study consisted of survey data obtained from 163 greenhouse vegetable producers in Mersin Province and the data included 2013-2014 production periods.

The average land size was determined as 14.47 da. According to results, 22.70% and 77.30% of the producers were determined as risk takers and risk averse, respectively. As a result of the production plans which were applied according to Game Theory approach, the production pattern changed according to the current state. Also, gross profit increased in the ratios of 15.55% and 8.46% for the producers who take and avoid risks, respectively.
