Abstract

This study aims to reveal the impact of Agro-industries on socio-economic development, development, and agriculture sector. In the research, statistical information about agricultural industry enterprises, socio-economic development, and some data related to the agricultural sector in the districts of Konya province, previous scientific studies were used. There are a total of 1,179 agricultural industry enterprises in Konya. Agro-industries are concerned with the processing and distribution of agricultural products, creating employment in both the production and marketing stages, contributing to making agriculture more profitable and sustainable. According to the correlation analysis, a highly positive and significant relationship was found between the agro-industries in the districts and socio-economic development. In addition, a positive and significant relationship was found between the agro-industry status of the districts and their status in the agricultural sector (agricultural area, milk production, agricultural tools-machinery, agricultural investments and supports, rural development investments). Accordingly, Agro-industries are very important for the development of a country or even a region.
