Agriculture remains the dominant sector of the Comorian economy.

Albalad Comores

LThe agricultural sector absorbs the vast majority of the population, contributes significantly to household revenues and provides a significant proportion of the products consumed by the population, despite the importance of imported food products. The main imports are rice, meat, poultry and wheat flour. Annuity products remain the major agricultural exports. Furthermore, for several years now, export revenues for main cash crops vanilla, ylang-ylang, clove have been declining due to competition on international markets.

Yet, vanilla cultivation is slowly starting to take up again. Production rose from 30 tons in to more than 50 tons in Clove production amounted to 4 tons in but fell considerably inwith an estimated production of 2 tons. Ylang-ylang production was estimated at 50 tons in During these past years, it experienced a bullish trend, characterized by good weather conditions. The total agricultural population amounted to persons in Mwali has the weakest agricultural population; the two other islands have nearly the same agricultural population.

The primary legal status of the average farm is a private property.

Comorian agriculture remains characterized by intercropping systems which fall into two sub-categories: Pure crops are very rare and relate only to coconut, clove, vanilla and ylang ylang as well as market gardening. There is a great diversity, with exceptional production conditions which allow fresh fruit supply all year round.


The two cereals grown in Comoros are rice and corn; production for both of them is weak. Their productivity is low owing to poor varieties, to degraded, very steep and non-fed soils on which they grow, and to rudimentary and unsuitable agricultural techniques. The four main legumes grown in Comoros are: Productivity, which was estimated at Production in was estimated at tons. These are banana, the most widely grown crop, and breadfruit. These two crops are found everywhere and in unfavourable ecological conditions.

Comoros import large quantities of cereals. Weaknesses in Comorian agriculture are due to relatively low and nonconducive producer prices, limited presence of public or private technical services in agricultural holdings, weak access to credits, unsuitable loan conditions and an insecure land tenure system.

Through partnership agreements with AMIE, the agricultural sector benefited from several cmores, including financing facilities.

The fisheries sector offers major assets for the Comorian economic growth. This zone has massive resources estimated at 33 tons annually, and 16 tons are currently being tapped into. Presently, fishing in Comoros is exclusively artisanal and is only intended for domestic consumption.

An agreement protocol has been signed with the Japan International Cooperation Agency JICA comorew, which provides support to the national school of fisheries in order to improve fishing techniques, training in fisheries etc. Following the Doha Conference, the Arab Committee, in partnership with the Comorian public and private sectors, established a national fisheries company whose activities will include fish processing and industrialization, industries and trade in boats and trawlers, selling, buying and renting boats and shipping equipment, technician training, etc.

Due to increasing competition for meat and poultry imports, the livestock sector is slow to develop in Comoros. The development of the livestock sector is also hampered by the lack of agro-pastoral space. In Comoros, animals are kept either directly by their owners, or left in the care of keepers or other people. Animals in Comoros mainly include ruminants cattle, goats and sheep and poultry.


The total number of ruminants per species amounts to 62 agricultural census validated in if only the three main species are considered.

Cattle are the largest population grouping, followed by goats and sheep. Ruminants have been on a balaf decline since due to epidemics that devastated the Comorian stock. The poultry sector is still declining, production costs are very high and competition from poultry imports is fierce.

There is a total number of 25 poultry, according to the agricultural census. However, since 5 years, much progress has been achieved, particularly in ruminant comors, which offers a number of advantages in the development of dairy production and in attempts to produce livestock feed.

Dairy production per bovine animal could be increased from comorfs to 8 litres and up to more than 10 litres per day. It consists of four islands: Grande Comore NgazidjaAnjouan Ndzwani The National Assembly is, according to the Constitution, the legislative committee of the Union.
