Thailand's Agriculture, Hunting, Forestry and Fishing sector accounted for 8% of the GDP, growing 1.6% y/y, in 2019. The sector accounted for 33.7% of Thailand’s total employment in 2019. Agricultural land claimed some 47% of the total area in 2019, and paddy fields accounted for 46% of the agricultural land. Thailand is among the world's leading exporters of agricultural commodities including rice, sugar, poultry, and seafood. Agriculture products and agro industrial products’ exports combined accounted for 16.5% of the total exports in 2019. Challenges to the sector include unseasonal weather; government intervention in support of farmers, rising input costs, animal health and plant phytosanitary issues, and alleged poor working conditions in some of the subsectors, such as aquaculture. The COVID-19 outbreak in 2020 and the record drought in 2019/2020 further hindered the agricultural production and trade.
