Togo’s agricultural growth rate has been growing steadily from 2010 to 2018

(Togo First) - From 3.95% in 2010, Togo’s agricultural growth rate rose to 5.63% in 2018, according to recent reports from the parent ministry. A peak of 14.32% was recorded in 2014, thus corresponding to an average growth of 6% per year over the period reviewed (2010-2018). 

This performance was translated to an agricultural GDP (at current price) of XOF1,357.4 billion in 2019. This is almost twice the figure recorded in 2010, knowingly XOF644.26 billion.

Agriculture, let’s emphasize, contributes 40% of Togo’s GDP and employs 60% of its active population. In regards to employment, sub-sectors that employ the most people are soybeans, sesame, and pineapple. The first two are the most supported by the government (after rice and maize). 

From 2010 to 2018, the government has invested more than XOF15 billion in 10 agricultural sectors.
