Agriculture and the African Continental Free Trade Area is a publication by the Trade Law Centre. This study lays a foundation for a series of analyses on the agricultural sector in the major African countries. The study examines the geographical profile for the top eight African agricultural products by country, and then a further eight products for general interest. A profile of agricultural production in Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa and Ethiopia is presented, as well as the main livestock producers by country.
One aspect of African agriculture that the study highlights is the diverse regionalization of production and trade, and that Africa agriculture is not a generic sector but rather one that can conveniently be examined in the context of its "four corners" of north, east, south and west.
