In this study, socio-economic structure and producing problems of triticale cultivation farms in Corum province were analysed. The study was carried out in Sungurlu district of Corum Province where the triticale cultivation is intensive in 2019 production period. According to the Neyman method, the sample farms were determined, and the data were obtained by face-to-face interviews with 53 triticale cultivate farmers. The farms were classified according to their size as Group I (≤ 15.00 decares; 18 farms), Group II (15.01-25.00 decares; 16 farms), and Group III (>25.01 decares; 19 farms). Average triticale land presence in farms was 27.26 da, and the share of triticale lands in total land presence was calculated as 9.58 %. It was determined that the average farmers’ age of 46.36 years, duration of education received 8.19 years, an average of 5.02 people per house, and 2.11 years of experience in the farmers’ triticale cultivation. It was determined that the most important problems of the farms having problems in triticale production; were high input costs, proper credit and fertiliser supply, low triticale sales price, cooperation and organisation between farmers, quality seed supply, water and irrigation problems. Triticale has become an important product for human and animal nutrition due to its ability to grow in marginal environments and its nutritional properties. It is thought that triticale production will increase in the coming years in the region if the triticale farmers’ problems are solved.
