Guinea has a population of over 12 million.
Guinea is highly agricultural. Along the streams and rivers, rice, bananas, tomatoes, strawberries and citrus fruits are grown commercially.
In Lower Guinea, oil and coconut palms, rice, bananas, vegetables, salt and fish are important elements of trade. A number of large-scale plantations produce a good quantity of bananas and pineapples.
47-63% of the food energy consumed in Guinea comes from crops that are not native to the region. Most of these plants’ diversity is found elsewhere on the planet.
