Agriculture: The main crop for internal consume is cassava. Main commercial food crops are coffee, sugar, palm oil and tobacco. However, the combination of poor soils and insufficient rainfall over most of Angola is a severe limitation to crop growing. In fact, less than one-tenth of the land area is thought to be arable.
