Colombia’s agriculture, livestock, forestry, hunting and fisheries sector accounted for 6.5% of GDP in 2017 and for 17.3% of total employment in 2017. The government agricultural support programme Colombia Siembra (“Colombia Sows”), adopted in 2015, and the peace agreement with the country’s biggest guerrilla group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), signed in November 2016, led to a growth of both planted area and of the sector’s production volume. In 2016, four departments were added to the reporting of agricultural data in Colombia, bringing the number of departments covered to 26 (out of a total of 32). Land use for agriculture and forestry in these 26 departments in 2016 totalled almost 47.3mn ha – with the four “new” departments accounting for more than 9.6mn ha of this – while the total crop production of all 26 departments was nearly 23.4mn tonnes.
