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.
