Agriculture

Agriculture is the leading economic sector in Tanzania. It accounts for about 50% of GDP, 75% of merchandise exports and is source of food and provides employment opportunities to about 80 percent of Tanzanians. It has linkages with the non-farm sector through forward linkages to agro-processing, consumption and export; provides raw materials to industries and a market for manufactured goods. The sector is well focused with a strong position in several major export markets. 

The country is covered by 88mn hectares of suitable agriculture land of which 60mn hectares are suitable for livestock production. Only 5.5% of the Tanzania's arable land is utilized, mainly by small-holder farmers. With irrigation, Tanzania can become a dominant grain exporter. 

A future vision for Tanzania agriculture sector is to have a highly efficient and economically viable market-driven large scale farming sector, characterised by a wide range of farming enterprises of varying sizes having a positive influence to the rest of the economy. 

The total number of agricultural and livestock projects approved by Tanzania Investment Centre between September 1990 and September 2000 were 123, leading to a total investment of TShs 264,775mn and generating 41,934 employment opportunities
