agricultural farming

Ethiopia's Ministry of Agriculture announced that harvest has been collected from 11.9 million hectares of land during the past two crop years, out of 12.9 million hectares that have been cultivated.

Germame Garoma, Agricultural Extension Director at the Ministry of Agriculture, said the harvest has been collected using both machinery and human labor. He added that there are certain crops that are yet to be collected, such as chickpeas and lentils. 

The collection of crops is undergoing without any problems, the Director noted. Although there are fears there may be an out-of-season rainfall, he said it will have no negative impact on the crop collection.

Ethiopia has obtained $1.32 billion from the export of agricultural products in the past six months, accounting for the lion's share of 70 percent of the total export earnings.
