Africa's value-added per worker in agriculture is about a quarter of the world's average and less than a fifth of China's.
One of the highest unresolved challenges facing Africa's agribusiness sector is the lack of value addition to agriculture.
Nigeria has been a significant force in Africa's agricultural industry over the years. As of 2022, the country's added a value of $106,923 to agriculture from $100,650 in 2021.
Other top countries with the highest value-added to agriculture in Africa are Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya and Algeria making the top five countries with high monetary value of agricultural value-added in 2022.
