Distribution of Farmers by Access to Drying Floors

Like storage facilities, drying floors are also very important in reducing post-harvest losses, especially during the drying stage of the product value chain. At the regional level, access to drying floors was found to be highest in the Eastern (23.5 per cent) and the Northern (23.2 per cent) regions followed
by the Southern region (13.6 per cent).
At the district level, Kailahun district recorded the highest percentage (12.0 per cent) of agricultural households with access to drying floors. This was followed by Kenema district (7.0 per cent), Bombali district (6.7 per cent) and Kambia district (5.5 per cent).

Area Under Tree Crop Cultivation by Region

At the national level, a total of 3,164,472 ha of land was under tree crop cultivation (coffee, cocoa, oil palm, citrus and cashew). A further 79,742 ha was under vegetable cultivation. The Eastern and part of Southern regions are traditionally known for the cultivation of coffee and cocoa. Recently cashew has been added to the list of tree crops because of its cash potential. It is being promoted nationwide, but farmers are being slow to take the crop on.
