THE FINANCIAL EFFICIENCY OF THE APPLE PRODUCTION IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
2005, 6 (1) p. 43-52
General trend of decreasing agricultural land area and global population increase sets new challenges for apple producers. This basically calls for more effi cient apple production. The integrated apple production is based on principles that combine fi nancially viable intensive production and simultaneously consider environment standards could be a solution to emerging problems in apple production. For implementation of this systems new technology standards and orchard management must be applied. The aim of this paper is the cost benefi t analysis of integrated apple production in BIH. The result show that integrated apple production in BIH is economically viable, assuming that expected yield and prices would be achieved.
