Zambia: Agricultural Economic Fact Sheet

Zambia is a landlocked country in Southern Africa and can be credited with political stability and strong economic growth in the last decade. However, despite a favorable climate, fertile land and the third largest water resource on the Africa continent, Zambia’s agricultural potential is not yet fully tapped with only 14 percent of suitable agricultural land currently under cultivation. Staple crops, including corn, cassava sorghum and rice and are cultivated mostly by subsistence and small-scale famers, with active government involvement in controlling these agricultural markets. Major agricultural export products includes, sugar, tobacco and cotton. Zambia exported agricultural goods worth US$0.8 billion in 2014.
