The authors fnd that the value of production ranges between 3. 538,3 EUR/ha in the Skopje region and 9. 034,3 EUR/ha in the Polog region. The same relationship is found in the variable costs, or on average 3. 982,3 EUR/ha, and individually range from 2591. 8 EUR/ha in Skopje region to 5. 199,0 EUR/ha in Polog region. Tobacco producers in the northeast region realize the lowest gross margin (1. 130,6 EUR/ha) while the highest (5. 780,7 EUR/ha) is found Polog region. At the same time, producers in the northeast region, produce tobacco at the lowest price (1,70 EUR/kg) and highest (2,65 EUR/kg) priced tobacco is produced in the easte region.
