Crop production, which accounts for 65 to 75 percent of sectoral GDP, has maintained a steady growth rate10. In spite of the changes in social and economic policy, growth in output has been between two and three percent per annum. This is to be expected in an agricultural economy based on subsistence farming where an estimated 40 percent of food consumption comes from home production. Under the various policy regimes, annual average growth rates for livestock and the other sub-sectors have been negative on occasion until the period of in-depth reform began in 1986.

Section I sets the stage with a brief review of agricultural growth since the late 1960s, identifying the sector's performance under different policy regimes. The macroeconomic framework is described with a brief assessment of its effect on agricultural growth. Section II describes the natural resource base, land use, and the nature of the rural household, drawing on a recent Poverty Profile to identify disadvantaged regions and characterize the rural poor. Tanzania has a very diverse geography and ecology.
