AbstractThe research aimed to study the structure of the productive costs of date palm (Zuhdi variety) district of Al-GdualAl-Garbi of the Holy Karbala Governorate for the season 2020, To achieve the objectives of the research, it was relied on the descriptive and quantitave analysis of the primary data collected through the personal interview of the owners of palm orchards in the study region.One of the most important findings of the study is the high production costs of this important crop, due to farmers’ dependence on traditional methods in the operations of serving and marketing the crop, as well as the low price of Zuhdi dates, which led to the loss of many orchard owners. and according to the prevalent farms price in AL-Gdual AL-Garbi region, the net actual farms income has decreased which amounted about (-547.522) thousand dinars comparing with estimated optimum output and maximum profit which are (1113.991, 1140.112) thousand dinars respectively. The costs elasticity of Zuhdi dates was estimated at the actual production level of about (0.652), which means that production in these orchards is subject to stage of increasing productivity. Based on the conclusions, the study recommended the need to re-work the policy of supporting Zuhdidates prices, and granting subsidies through the provision of soft loans and encouraging the private sector to establish institutions to market dates and develop public sector institutions.
