Agriculture at the heart of the country’s economy

Serbia’s fertile land and natural conditions for agricultural production. The major agricultural land is in the northern part of the country Agriculture in Serbia is an engine for development of rural areas. Agriculture’s contribution to Serbia’s GDP remains high. In 2016, agriculture accounted for 11.9 percent of GDP.

Approximately 60 percent of Serbia’s agricultural land is used for cereal crop production including corn, wheat, barley, sunflowers, soya, and sugar beets. Agriculture is also the most important export sector in Serbia.

Room for Improvement

Serbia needs to define budgetary incentives and adopt laws and rulebooks that facilitate agricultural development, as well as greater farmer training and exposure to new technologies. Serbian agrifood sector could benefit from achieving current European standards and EIT Food can help them follow the right course.

Serbian cuisine is a heterogeneous cuisine. It is blend of Mediterranean flavours with the heartier eating habits of Central Europe.
