AGRICULTURE

Of Burundi’s total land area, 33 percent is utilized for cultivated crops, while another 14 percent supports permanent crops such as trees bearing fruits and nuts.

The economy is also highly dependent on the export of coffee and tea, which account for 90 percent of the country’s foreign exchange earnings.

CHALLENGES

Due to outdated agricultural practices and poor use of resources, 68 percent of Burundi’s population lives in poverty.

Two of several urgent agricultural issues facing Burundi are soil erosion and deforestation.
