Fifty-one percent of the 11.3 million are women, while 49 percent are men, all from 2.6 million households.

Agricultural activity in the country, according to the report, remains mainly rural and rudimentary, with little innovation and modernisation.

It says the level of education among agricultural holders is low; while the sector, to a large extent, is characterised by consumption of its own produce.

The use of modern tools and equipment such as tractors, shellers, power tillers, hatchery/incubator, meat processing equipment and milking equipment is considered negligible.
