The EAT project conducted an AgCLIR assessment and market study in Liberia to address the enabling environment and market for agricultural commodities.
Liberia is rich in the natural resources needed for a vibrant agriculture sector. It has good quality soil, abundant rain, and a climate suitable for sustaining the production of two or three harvests annually.
Overall, meaningful and actionable analysis of business in Liberia in general, and agribusiness in particular, is hamstrung by limited or outdated production and pricing information about agricultural commodities and foodstuffs. A key finding of this analysis, therefore, is the lack of timely and accurate market data for most food and industrial crops and livestock, including production statistics over time, pricing patterns, costs of production, farm budgets, analysis of marketing margins, and trade flows.
