Bosnia and Herzegovina - Agriculture

About 12.7% (650,000 hectares/1,606,000 acres) of the total area was considered arable land in 1998. About 5.6% of the economically active population was engaged in agriculture in 1999. During the disintegration of the Yugoslav SFR, civil fighting in the major agricultural areas often interrupted harvests and caused considerable loss of field crops, as indicated by the following summary of the 1999 harvest (in 1,000 tons): corn, 160; wheat, 188; potatoes, 380; fruit, 78; vegetables and melons, 609; and onions (dry), 35.
