Swaziland Agriculture and Fishing Overview


Four-fifths of the population of Swaziland feed on agriculture. The most common are small family farms on land that formally belong to the king. The most important crop for households is maize.

  • CountryAAH: Comprehensive import regulations of Swaziland. Covers import prohibitions and special documentation requirements for a list of prohibited items.

Many small farmers also raise livestock on a small scale. A major problem for farmers is recurring drought that leads to food shortages and sometimes famine.

About 40 percent of the agricultural land is grown sugar cane, cotton, citrus fruits and pineapple for export. Tobacco and rice are also grown. These crops are processed in the food industry and provide important export income for the country. Export agriculture is part of large, often irrigated, plantations owned by domestic or foreign companies.

Cattle are raised both by small farmers and on ranches. Overgrazing is a serious environmental problem that leads to soil degradation.
