The study focused on the
profitability of tomato production in the Talensi Nabdam District of
Upper East Region of Ghana. A total of 100 respondents were interviewed
using questionnaire. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics and
the income statement. The arithmetic mean was used to find the average
cost of production, output per acre and return per acre. Tomato
production was found to be profitable with a profit of GH¢ 284.83 per
hectare, output of 1,716kg per hectare, gross income of GH¢1,304.16 per
hectare and return per Cedi invested was found to be 0.279 Pesewa. Labor
constituted 62% of the total variable cost and this shows the high
intensity of labor in tomato production.
