However, agricultural sector has some structural problems, such as periodic income, but continuous costsand need for modern and expensive machines. Because of these problems, agricultural producers should obtainnecessary finance in order to increase their competitive powers. Banks are important institutions providing financialsources to agricultural producers to be effective in agricultural sector while minimizing the problems of producers.Based on the issues in the field, this study aims to identify the performance of Turkish banks regarding agriculturalsector. Within this scope, we analyzed the performance of state-owned, privately-owned and foreign banks in Turkeyseparately.
