Favourable Location & Weather
Agricultural development has benefited from Cambodia’s geographical assets. Most of the population is concentrated in lowlands and hills where freshwater (from rivers, lakes, and underground sources) is abundant. In addition, Cambodia enjoys favourable climate conditions thanks to heavy rainfall during the monsoon season (May to October), with temperatures remaining high during the period.
Cambodian agriculture is in the midst of a rapid transformation. Agricultural growth averaged 5.3% during 2004-2012, which was among the highest in the world. Growth was driven by a combination of increased yields, more productive use of labor due to mechanization, and the expansion of farmland.
