The chief staple crops include a variety of grains, such as tea, wheat,barley, corn, sorghum, and millet; coffee; and oilseed. Grains are the primary staples of the diet and are thus the most important field crops. Ethiopian farmers don’t have access to water for irrigation because of the way the river was divided up hundreds of years ago. The global warming has caused the rainy season in Ethiopia to become shorter. Fields are drying up and farmers are fighting over irrigation resources. Better fed people can contribute longer to economic growth and raise the country’s GDP. They will have healthier children who are educated raising the human capital of the country.
