Write-up taken from the IRRI's Rice Almanac (2013):


Côte d’Ivoire is centrally located along the southern coast of West Africa. Its borders are formed by Ghana to the east, Burkina Faso and Mali to the north, Guinea and Liberia to the west, and the Gulf of Guinea to the south. The country has two principal zones: the tropical rainforest to the south and the savanna to the north, in a total land area of 318,000 km2, of which arable land is 8.8% (2009). Toward the middle of the country, the terrain rises to a low plateau covered by a partially wooded savanna. Here, the annual rainfall totals 1,100–1,200 mm during the rainy season from April to October. The Ivorian population was 20.15 million in 2011, of which at least 3 million are immigrants from neighboring countries. Agriculture supports 38% of the population and produces 24% of GDP. Rice is the principal food crop grown in many areas and is one of the most important staple foods for the country’s urban population.
