Agriculture is one of the leading sectors in Tanzania accounting for at least 24% of the GDP, 30% of total exports and 65% of raw materials for Tanzanian industries.
Tanzania’s agricultural sector has played a key role in the last 25 years contributing to a general decline in poverty thanks to the country’s fertile arable lands.
