Abstract

This study was conducted to determine effect of climate change (temperature and rainfall) on the amount of ınput uses such as fertilizer, pesticide, animal manure, family labour, paid labour and machine by selected farmer’s.The minumum usable sample of farm enterprises were determined as 124 based on stratified sampling technique. The data were collected from six villages in Çumra and Sarayönü districts in Konya. Input applications as farmer preference under the increasing temperature and rainfall were compared with its under the decreasing temperature and rainfall situations. The binary logistic regression was applied to determine the influence of each selected agricultural practise on the probability that the change of temperature and rainfall conditions. The results showed that when the temperature rises, the percantage of farmers who decrease the amount of chemicals (fertilizer and pesticide), the amount of paid labour increase. When the rainfall rises, the percantage of farmers who increase the amount of chemicals and the amount of family labour decrease. The other factors weren’t significantly important at the level of probability or beter as 0.05.
