About agriculture

Rural Development Fund   participates in applied research related to various aspects of rural development, including agriculture.

Agriculture plays an important role in the country's economy. It accounts for 35.3% of GDP and employs 55% of the total workforce (2007 data). Only about 7% of the country's total territory is used for crop production, with 85% of agricultural land used as pasture for livestock grazing. Due to the geographical and topographic features of the territory of Kyrgyzstan, animal husbandry continues to be a significant part of the country's agriculture.
