Agriculture

Agriculture production is the cornerstone to Sudan's economy. The country is blessed with a wealth of 300-400 million feddans of fertile land. This sector employs over 80% of the work force and accounts for nearly 40% of the Gross Domestic Product. Dams have been built throughout the country that divert nearly sixty percent of the water resource to sustaining the agricultural sector. Though there are also farms that are solely dependent on the abundance of rain to maintain a good yield, the country has embarked on a massive campaign to improve the irrigation system from the labyrinth of rivers and lakes to supply the resource to these farmers. Irrigated area in Sudan is estimated at some 4 million feddans (about 1068 million hectares), of which federal schemes total 3 million feddans, Gezira, Rahad, Souki, New Halfa.

Sudan grows a variety of crops that include cereals (wheat, sorghum, millet, corn and rice), oil –seeds (sesame, groundnuts and sunflowers), beans, chickpeas, and lentils. Others include cotton, sisal hemp and fodder crops. Horticultural crops include vegetables (onions, tomatoes, okra, egg-plant, potatoes, water-melon, cucumber), tropical and equatorial fruits. Aromatic and medical herbs are also grown. Forest wood products are also to be found and harvested in abundance.
