The major objective of this study is the identification of the general problems associated with credit in Turkish agriculture. Therefore, an attempt will be made to find the faults of the system, which, in turn, will enable us to take the required measures to improve upon the present system. Although this study is an attempt to analyze the problems associated with the organization of the agricultural credit system, its orientation will be largely about the conflicts between the traditional and the modern concept of agricultural credit. Particularly, it is an examination of the hypothesis that the current credit policy should be changed in such a way that it helps to increase the economic efficiency with which resources are used in agriculture. The basic premise is that credit should be allocated on the basis of the marginal value productivity of capital rather than the value of assets used as security.
