Senegal has a rich history of traditional agriculture, which has been a cornerstone of its economy and culture for centuries. The country’s agricultural practices have traditionally focused on staple crops such as millet, sorghum, rice, and groundnuts, which are well-suited to the region’s climate and soil conditions. Smallholder farmers play a significant role in Senegal’s agricultural sector, with many relying on traditional farming methods passed down through generations.

Despite its importance, traditional agriculture in Senegal faces various challenges, including unpredictable weather patterns, soil degradation, limited access to modern farming techniques and technologies, and low productivity. These challenges threaten food security and livelihoods, particularly in rural areas where agriculture is the primary source of income for many households.

In recent years, Senegal has made significant strides in adopting green technology and sustainable agricultural practices to address these challenges and enhance the resilience of its agricultural sector. This progressive move towards green technology is driven by a growing recognition of the importance of sustainable agriculture in achieving food security, reducing poverty, and mitigating the impacts of climate change.
