Agriculture in Liberia faces significant challenges that hinder its potential to contribute to economic growth and improve the livelihoods of rural communities. Liberia is a predominantly rural country, and agriculture is a significant contributor to the country’s economy, employing over half of the population.
However, despite its potential, agriculture in Liberia faces several challenges. Some of the main challenges include:

  • Limited access to financing and credit for farmers, which hinders their ability to invest in their farms and expand their production.
  • Inadequate infrastructure, including poor roads and limited access to markets, make it difficult for farmers to transport their products to buyers and access essential agricultural inputs such as fertilizers and seeds.
  •  Climate change and environmental degradation, including deforestation and soil erosion, undermine agricultural productivity and contribute to food insecurity.
  •  Limited access to technology and technical expertise, which hinders farmers ability to adopt modern agricultural practices and increases productivity.
  •  Limited access to irrigation, which makes farming dependent on rainfall and vulnerable to droughts.
  •  Inadequate government support for the agricultural sector, including limited investment in research and development, and inadequate policy frameworks.
  •  These challenges contribute to low productivity, food insecurity, and poverty in rural communities, and hinder the agricultural sector’s potential to contribute to economic growth and development.
  •  Climate resilient agriculture

Our approaches help to improve agricultural productivity, reduce poverty and food insecurity, and promote economic growth, promote smart agriculture and development in Agriculture. Our smart agriculture approaches increase productivity, reduce waste, improve sustainability, and reduce labor costs. These different approaches can also help to mitigate the effects of climate change and improve food security by enabling farmers to produce more food with fewer resources.
