(1) Overview of Cambodian Agriculture

1. Natural conditions

Cambodia has a tropical monsoon climate, with an average annual temperature of 29°C to 30°C. The rainy season is from May to November each year, and 

the dry season is from December to April of the following year. The average precipitation throughout the year is about 1,700mm. Affected by topography 

and monsoons, precipitation varies greatly across Cambodia.

Cambodia has an advantageous geographical location, abundant sunshine, humid climate and abundant rainfall, which is suitable for the production of most 

crops, especially rice.

2. Overview of agricultural development

Agriculture is the largest pillar industry of Cambodia's economy. Cambodia's agriculture accounts for 54.7% of the employed population, 60% of the country's 

population lives in rural areas, and the agricultural labor force is relatively abundant.

Cambodia mainly grows rice, cassava, and corn, as well as sugar cane, tropical fruits (mango, banana, etc.), natural rubber and other crops. After 2000, 

Cambodia has achieved overall self-sufficiency in food, and its rice exports have grown rapidly, especially fragrant rice, which has obvious competitive advantages. 

In addition, Cambodia is rich in tropical fruits. Bananas and mangoes can be exported directly to China. High-value fruits such as longan, dragon fruit and durian 

are also actively working to expand exports.
