In this study, input oriented efficiency analysis of soybean growing in Adana province was performed. Data were collected from 84 farmers with face to face survey method by using stratified sampling method. In the analysis of data economic analysis of soybean production was performed and after input use efficiency in soybean production was analysed by Data Envelopment Analysis.
