Nigeria Overtakes Egypt As Largest Rice Producing Country In Africa

Posted By:  on  March 5, 2019


Nigeria has overtaken Egypt as the largest rice producer in Africa, Director-General, Africa Rice Center, Benin Republic, Dr Harold Roy- Macauley reveals to Thenation.

Roy-Macauley said that Nigeria now produces 4 million tonnes a year. Egypt was producing 4.3 tonnes annually but production has reduced by almost 40% this year due to the government’s decision to limit cultivation to preserve water resources. Egypt rice cultivation requires about 1.8 billion metres of water in evaporation, transpiration and irrigation each year. Africa produces an average of 14.6 million tonnes of rough rice annually. Roy-Macauley noted that there were efforts to increase overall rice production in Africa but expressed doubts that it will curb rice importation as population has increased across the continent.
