Abstract: Agricultural sector is vital for human beings, it provides stuff to the other sectors and it contributes to employment considerably. A large proportion of the exportation of our country is made from the agricultural products. Thereby it can be said that the agricultural sector is one of the main sectors contributing to the economy of the country considerably.

Within this context to determine the sector’s contribution to the country’s economy clearly is related to recording the agricultural transactions properly and choosing the realistic methods and implementations. But despite the importance that agricultural transactions carry; the rules of recognition of the related transactions stays at an area that is not much worked on by the operators and researchers till the accounting postulates published. One reason for this is the sector, which is generally made-up of familyowned companies, and the operators have a general viewpoint that accounting is not the purpose of management but taxation.
