We re-weight four years of the AgSS data () to provide woreda production rankings in the four main agricultural regions of Ethiopia (Amhara, Tigray, Oromia and the SNNP) for eight staple crops (wheat, maize, barley, sorghum, teff, chickpea, sesame, and coffee). ethiopia strategy support program (essp ii) research note 11 Ethiopia’s crop agriculture is complex, involving substantial variation in crops grown across the country’s different.
Extensive efforts were made to collect the required data on climate, crop and socio-economic conditions as required to parameterize, calibrate and apply climate, crop and economic models. • Twice-yearly rainfall (March and June-September) allows for multiple crops to be produced; coupled with irrigation schemes, year-round double/rotational cropping is possible. • Several crops are already exported (fruits and vegetables, flowers, coffee, sesame) . Five major cereals (teff, wheat, maize, sorghum, and barley) are the core of Ethiopia’s agriculture and food economy, accounting for about three-fourths of the total area cultivated, 29 percent of agricultural gross domestic product (GDP) in /06 (14 percent of total GDP), and 64 percent of calories consumed (FAO various years). season 15/3 30/4 kg/ha days 31/7 Second,, Wheat durum season 7/6 25/7 kg/ha days 25/9 15/12 Crop calendar and management form for maize, millet, sorghum and wheat in Ethiopia as compiled by Kindie Tesfaye Reference weather station Crop rotation Crop cycle Water regime Actual sowing date Optimal sowing date Growth duration.
Alhough the sector is the backbone of the Ethiopia's economy, it has been contributing to the national growth domestic product by 8 per cent till /16, and 6 per cent by /17 fiscal year.

As such, domestic demand is set to be dented in the quarter. the highlands. Specific crops and livelihood choices within and outside this band are conditioned by moisture and temperature regimes, among other factors. The crops most suited to grow in the Dega and Weyna Dega zones in Ethiopia are also the most commonly produced crops in Ethiopia. Most producers in these zones are. However, according to data from the Ethiopian government's Central Statistical Authority, during the /61 to /74 period the economy achieved sustained economic growth.
