Abstract

The planting season of crops has always been an important research topic to the revenue. This research aims to use bananas as a case study and use the principle of break-even analysis to explore the issues of profit and loss and market potential of the spring-summer’s bananas and the autumn-winter’s bananas in Taiwan. The secondary data were collected from Council of Ag-riculture, Executive Yuan Taiwan during 2011-2015. The concept of break-even analysis was applied in this research as the research methodol-ogy. The empirical results found that the break-even points of spring-summer’s bananas and autumn-winter’s bananas during 2010-2015 were decreasing due to the increase of an average market selling price. However, the spring-summer’s bananas have a higher revenue ratio than the other season. Therefore, the bananas’ growers in Taiwan should plant ba-nanas during the spring-summer season in order to gain a higher profit.
