The economic results show that the Melissa officinalis cultivation is economically effective and in comparison with the economic indicators of conventional crops planted on arable land, this herb achieves several times higher profit per hectare. The marginal costs of production are higher than its marginal revenues. Our research confirms that production of Salvia officinalis – sort Krajova and Comune is not profitable. The dominant factors that negatively affect the efficiency of growing this herb are low and unstable hectare yields on the one hand and high production costs on the other hand. Based on our research, it is possible to assume that the profit from production of Salvia officinaliswas obtained only of the sort of Primorska and only through direct planting.Keywords:
