Abstract

This study examines the financial and economic viability of producing commercial tomatoes for the fresh market in Georgia. Historical data on yields, prices received by growers, and actual production input prices were collected and used to develop an enterprise budget. 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.
