Abstract: The paper aims to evaluate the timing effect of support policies on farmers’ stated intentions in Turkey. Farmers are provided with a scenario in which supports would be paid immediately after the harvest rather than the current practice of being paid one year later. We ask how farmers would behave when the support payments are paid after the corn harvest. If the timing of the payment was changed, 41% of the farmers state that they would increase their land. However, if farmers compensate for the need for capital from other crops, such as citrus fruits, then the timing becomes unimportant.
