The study mainly aims to study the production and marketing of olives in Fayoum governorate, and the most important problems and obstacles facing it in the stages of production and marketing, and proposing solutions to them. The research method in the study relied on the use of the two methods of descriptive and quantitative statistical analysis. The study also relied on published and unpublished secondary data for the study variables issued by the official authorities. Two questionnaires were designed, one for the production of the olive crop and the other for olive pickling factories. Selection of the study sample: Two main centers were selected from Fayoum Governorate, according to the area of olives planted in the centers of Fayoum Governorate. Accordingly, the village of ManshiyetQarun was chosen from the Youssef Al-Siddiq Center, as it has the largest area for olive cultivation in the center, and the village of Manshiy et al.,-Jamal from the Tamiya Center. The study concluded: Fayoum Governorate is considered one of the most important governorates in olive cultivation, as the relative importance of the governorate in relation to the Republic ranged between 6.54, 6.33, 6.42 for the years 2015, 2016, 2017 of the area in acres, and the percentage of the fruitful area was 8.87, 7.77, 6.68 for the years 2015, 2016, 2017. The study showed the relative importance of the production of Fayoum Governorate compared to the Republic, where for the years 2015, 2016, 2017 it was 9.84, 8.65, 7.01 tons. The study data also showed that Fayoum governorate ranks first among the governorates of central Egypt in terms of the area of olive cultivation and production, as the total area of olive cultivation reached about 15548 acres, representing about 63.1% of the average area of olive cultivation in central Egypt, which is about 24683 acres in 2018. 2017, and it also ranks first in terms of production, with a production volume of about 76,823 tons, representing about 64.6% of the total average Egyptian production of about 118,840 tons of olives in 2017.
