Jump to: navigation, search

Major produce of South Sudan includes cotton, groundnuts (peanuts), sorghum, millet, wheat, gum arabic, sugarcane, cassava (tapioca), mangos, papaya, bananas, sweet potatoes, sesame, sheep, and other livestock.

Only about four per cent of arable land in South Sudan is cultivable. Famines are a common phenomenon here and because of this the country could not really produce sufficient staple cereals such as sorghum or dura for its own use.

Agricultural Imports

South Sudan imports food commodities like sugar, onion, tea-leaves and many others are imported in satisfactory quantities and at affordable prices from North Sudan.
