In general every agricultural production has a specific goal for the producer to gain certain economic benefits. The financial effect of tobacco production depends on the tobacco yield and quality.
The goal of this paper was to perform an economic evaluation of tobacco varieties of popular oriental aromatic type Prilep by analysis of dry tobacco yield and quality as well as the given average price (economic parameters) to present the gross income per unit of area (ha).
All researches were performed in the Scientific Tobacco Institute – Prilep in the period between 2009 and 2010 in field experiments with four repetitions, set by the method of random blocks system. Varieties P-23 (control), P 12-2/1, NS-72, P-66-9/7, P-79-94 and Prilep basma 82 were used in the researches. Dry tobacco yield and quality of the varieties were established in accordance with the Book of regulations for quantitative and qualitative evaluation of dry tobacco leaves of oriental aromatic tobacco types (Official Gazette of the Republic of Macedonia no.16/2007 and no.114/2010). Afterwards the yield presented in kg/ha, the average price and the gross income presented in euros were mathematically calculated.
The results show that the varieties P-66-9/7 and Prilep basma 82 have the highest level of yield and quality, which guarantees higher gross income per unit of area, when compared to other varieties (P-66-9/7 = 8183,33 €/ha; Prilep basma 82 = 8568,20 €/ha).
From the researches we can see that tobacco production is a profitable agricultural activity in the Republic of Macedonia if the variety is carefully chosen and modern agrotechnical measures are applied.
