This report focuses on the growing of crops, market gardening and horticulture in Tanzania. The country’s economy is heavily dependent on agriculture, which accounts for 21% of GDP and 22% of total export earnings, and employs 75% of the labour force. The main staple crops in Tanzania are maize, cassava, rice, wheat, millet, sorghum and plantain. Farmers do not rely on only one staple crop, but usually grow several. Among the staple foods grown during 2013, maize acreage was the largest at 4.1 million hectares (ha), followed by cassava and rice at around 900,000 ha each. The main cash crops are coffee, cotton, sugar cane, tea, cashew nuts, tobacco and sisal. Among these cash crops, cotton acreage was 490,000 ha, cashew nuts 410,000 ha, coffee 120,000 ha, sisal 58,000 ha, sugar cane 30,000 ha and tea 3,000 ha. Reliance on erratic rainfall, limited use of improved seeds and fertilisers, and low levels of cultivation of arable land are preventing Tanzania from reaching its full production potential. Growth of the sector is also constrained by a lack of infrastructure, including poor road transport, especially in rural areas, and a lack of storage facilities.
