The Cameroonian ministry of agriculture (Minader) is pleased to announce that in 2017, the agricultural sector alone provided 76.38% of GDP, up from the 68% a year earlier.

The feat was achieved thanks to efforts pulled to boost production in high value added sub-sectors, through increased mechanization and equipment. Key beneficiary sub-sectors include cocoa, coffee, cotton, rubber, rice, banana, manioc, etc. Cocoa production which grew by 9% in 2016, is expected to surge by 18% this year, while banana output should grow 5%, from 1% in 2016.

Let’s mention that under this move, producers benefited from higher quality seeds and plant material. Also, the establishment of farms across the country helped increase the areas cultivated, increasing production.

    I would like to show some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of such a instance. Because of looking out through the search engines and seeing strategies which were not productive, I thought my life was gone. Living minus the solutions to the issues you have solved all through your entire report is a serious case, and the ones that would have negatively damaged my entire career if I hadn't come across the website. Your personal knowledge and kindness in handling every part was important. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come upon such a solution like this. I can at this time relish my future. Thanks so much for your expert and sensible guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse your blog to anyone who would need assistance about this problem.
