There is no obstacle for foreigners to buy agricultural land in Turkey. The way for foreigners to purchase agricultural land has been opened by the Land Registry Law and the decision of the Council of Ministers.
Turkey stands out as an important agricultural country with its favorable land that allows various products to be grown simultaneously, both due to its geographical features and its location. Especially the Marmara, Aegean, and Mediterranean regions located in the west and south of the country are among the regions that stand out with a wide variety of product cultivation.
In Turkey, where there are various alternatives for foreign investors, demand for high-value-added agricultural products is increasing day by day. The products that foreigners who want to engage in agriculture in Turkey mostly prefer are products such as Pistachio, Almond, Walnut, and Olive. It is possible to make big profits thanks to both high-quality and high-yield products.
Turkey, which is one of the world's most important high-value-added products, is one of the leading countries in the world in terms of olive and olive oil production. Turkey has the highest number of olive trees and ranks fourth in terms of olive production worldwide, while ranking fifth in olive oil production. With its fertile soil and ecological system for olive growing and yield, approximately 80% of olive production in Turkey is carried out in the Aegean Region located in the west of Turkey. In Manisa, which has experienced a rapid rise in recent years with its olive wealth in the Aegean region, newly established olive groves for olive oil production provide high profits to investors. Considering the increasing oil prices in recent years, investments in olives and olive oil are rapidly continuing to be the most preferred agricultural products for foreign investors.
