Agricultural machinery sector is strongly related to the both positive and negative events in

the agriculture sector. That is why; dealing with the agricultural machinery sector

independently from the agriculture sector is not possible. In the planning of the machinery

sector for agriculture, the targets that are determined for agricultural sector have to be

considered. As in the other countries, agricultural sector is the base of the national

economy in Turkey, too. According to the distribution of the 2011 employment statistics,

approximately 26% of the total employment is in the agricultural sector. A strong

agricultural machinery sector is developed as a result of that big sector.


By the completion of the Southeast Anatolian Project (GAP), 1.8 million hectares cultivated

land can be irrigated. Such a big irrigated farmland means that agricultural production will

be sufficient for all the Middle East. GAP, for which the government reserves 5 billion

Dollars in the beginning of the year 2008, provides very significant opportunities to the

future of the Turkey’s agricultural sector. At the end of the completion of the project, the

agricultural sector meets the opportunity to make large-scale investments and this will

effect the development of the agricultural machinery sector in a positive way.

In Turkey, approximately 130 different machines and equipment are manufactured in

agricultural machinery sector. The manufactured products are mainly as follows: Tractors,

harvesters, pedestrian controlled tractors, mowers, powered, lawn, with horizontal cutting

device, seeders, planters and transplanters, manure spreaders and fertiliser distributors,

means and equipment for plant protection and irrigation, harvesters, threshers, dryers,

machines and equipments for cleaning, distinguishing and processing, milking machines

and other equipments for farm and garden usage.


The agricultural machinery sector is classified in two groups in Turkey as agricultural

machines and equipment sector and the tractor sector. In the machines and equipment

sector, there are 1,000 producers and importers. On the other hand, 22 firms are active in

tractor sector. The sector employs 20,000 people in Turkey.
