The regularity of the agricultural landscape on the Anatolian Plateau, north of a line going from Ankara to Sivas is striking. The orderly and clear cut fields are the result of the modernization of the Turkish agriculture since the 1950s. But the primary sector represents still 13 % of the GDP. Farms are still small and family run. Agriculture here traditionnally combines cereals with small and big livestock. Since the XIXth century, crops have become more regionalized. Olives, figs, grapes and citruses are grown by the sea ; cotton and vegetables grown in greenhouses by the Mediterranean coast ; tobacco in the Egean region and in the plains along the Black Sea ; hazelnuts and tea around Trabzon ; sugar beet in the central high plains. In Turkey, 46,6 % of the labor force still works for the agricultural sector (for example, the figure is 1% in Great Britain).
