Senegal’s Ministry of Agriculture released its 2020/21 Agricultural Program in April 2020. This report provides a summary of the objectives and policies in the 2020/21 Agricultural Program, which consist primarily of subsidies for inputs and equipment. Due to the negative effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the agricultural sector, the Government of Senegal (GoS) has increased this year’s agricultural program budget by 20 billion CFA francs ($33.3 million), a 50 percent increase from last year’s budget, to provide the sector greater support. The total budget of the 2020/21 Agricultural Program will be 60 billion CFA francs ($100 million), 40 percent of which will go towards fertilizer subsidies and 50 percent of which will go towards seed subsidies. Priority crops for seed subsidies include peanut, cowpea, rice, and corn.
