Abstract: 

Domestic cooking oil supply accounts for less than 10% of the nation's demand, the remainder being imported out of considerable hard currency expenditure. Increased production of oilseeds, therefore, is an important objective in Iranian agriculture. For planning and decision making authorities to take informed decisions on this sub-sectors, the socioeconomic and technological factors influencing farmer's behavior toward oilseed's production must be studied.
The present paper reports the results of a study on factors determining rapeseed production in Mazandaran Province in 2003-2004 crop year, explained that Mazandaran is one of the large producers of oilseeds in Iran. Using TOBIT econometrics method, and cross section data, the study found out that the most influenced factors in rapeseed area expansion in this province were: farm size; farmer's experience; farmer's out-farming income; participation in promotive classes; number of farm's pieces and the situation of subsidy catching.
