Gambia - Country Food and Agriculture Delivery Compact

The Gambia’s local food production meets about 50% of the country’s food needs. Crop yields are low, with an average of 1.5 tons/ha for cereals against a potential of 3 to 6 tons/ha. Only 19.59% of the demand for rice (the staple food) is met by local production and only about 38% of the country’s total land area or about 430,000 ha is arable.
