Although the discussions about the direct or indirect intervention of the state in other sectors and the agricultural sector continue at all times, a definitive view has not been fully adopted. However, even in economies with liberal views, the intervention of the state in the agricultural sector could not be completely prevented and policies related to it began to be produced. Government subsidies to the agricultural sector in the world, especially the European Union, which allocates 2/3 of its budget to agriculture, continues to increase. In this study, taking the Özalp district of Van as an example, the place of the agricultural sector in Turkey and the importance of government subsidies and incentives will be emphasized.

Turkey's past, potential and productivity in the agricultural field are in certain dimensions, and in the light of these data, how much of the incentives, direct and indirect subsidies made to the agricultural sector, which constitutes an important part of the economy, actually return to the agricultural sector as real production? In this study, the answer to this question will be sought.

The research is based on the survey analysis of the Özalp District sample. The main reason for choosing the survey method is that the dependence of the agricultural sector on human factors is undeniably high. In the survey analysis, the data obtained by communicating directly with the farmers, who are the executives of agricultural activities, were analyzed with the SPSS program.
