The agriculture sector in Sudan is a vital contributor to the country’s economy and directly affects the livelihoods of a large portion of the population. In partnership with AmunData we conducted a survey of 308 farmers in seven states. Our Survey revealed that the majority of farmers obtain inputs such as seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides from the local or central market, while a smaller proportion obtains them directly from companies. CTC, Al-Arabiya, Mahjoub Sons Group, El-Doma, and Sinnar Agriculture Company are among the companies functioning in the Sudanese agricultural industry, each of which provides a variety of products and services to farmers in the country.
Type of Sources
The Study showed that 38% of farmers sourced their inputs from the local market, while 23% obtained them from the central market. A smaller proportion 23% of farmers obtained their inputs directly from companies. About 5% of farmers received inputs from the Agricultural Bank, and the remaining 23% obtained them from schemes and other sources.

CTC is a leading producer of fertilizers and pesticides in Sudan which specializes in agro-technology. Al-Arabiya is another major player, with a 13% share of the market.
