In this study, Good Agricultural Practices for mandarin production and their effects on the efficient energy use and environmental were examined. This paper presents the results of asurvey conducted in the Adana province between January and February 2017. Data used in this study were obtained from 87farmers and consultant engineers who practice good agriculture in mandarin production using aface-to-face interview method. In this research, the total energy requirement for the mandarin production was 4686.46 MJkg(-1). The energy use efficiency indicator, efficiency and specific energy values were 1.92, 0.52 kgMJ(-1) and 0.92 MJkg(-1) respectively. As aresult of the research, renewable energy ratio was determined as 7.79%, and non-renewable energy ratio was determined as 86.17% in the total energy input. When the effects of the survey are compared with those of the literature, it shows that good farming practices in Turkey affect energy efficiency and environmental expectations in production positively, albeit at adepressed point.
