Banana, the production of which is restricted in some regions in both the world and in Turkey, is a rather demanded product as it is delicious, exotic and nutritious. The production, consumption and trade of banana is in high volumes in the world. Banana is the fourth most important crop species in the world and is critical for food security in many tropical countries. Bananas have been cultivated economically for a long time in subtropical regions of Turkey where production and productivity per hectare have significantly increased due to the adoption of protected cultivation. In Turkey, banana is mainly cultivated in Anamur and Bozyazı, where protected cultivation is common, and Alanya and Gazipasa, where open cultivation is widely used. The area of protected cultivation in Alanya has lately been increasing. The objective of the study was to evaluate sustainability in banana production of Turkey.
