Specifically, the study was aimed at analyzing profit margins and break-even conditions, and presents various operating scenarios under a risk-rated return framework. Analysis of enterprise cost and return estimates indicated that commercial tomato production is a lucrative business enterprise worth investing.The result will be useful to Georgia and the neighboring southeast and deep-south states that adopt similar agricultural production practices.
