Tanzania Agribusiness Q1 2020
While we continue to see agricultural output rising in Tanzania over the next five years, as the sector remains animportant contributor to economic growth and employment, productivity will be low. The industry is dominated by smallholderfarms that are highly dependent on rainfall, access to rural credit and farm inputs is limited, and support policies from thegovernment have been largely ineffective.
