Abstract

The article looks into the population, agricultural labour force, agricultural productivity and overall economic activities in Libya between 1990 and 2004. In addition study analyses growth in agricultural productivity. The agricultural labour force in 1990 was 13.7% of total labour force; however, in 2004 it had dropped to 4.6%. This occurred because of people migration from villages to cities, looking for jobs in other economic sectors, since income from other sectors was higher. Other factors included: drop in rain fall, decrease in income reinvestment, and lack of qualifi ed labour force. The growth in agricultural labour productivity in 2004 by 12.7% was observed due to use of new technologies in the agricultural sector.
