Agriculture is playing a very important role in the Sudan economy of the country as more than 70 per cent of the population is engaged directly or indirectly in this activity. Sudan earns 45 per cent of its GDP from Agriculture. The current paper presents evolution of statistical activities and setting up of its institution is taken up since 1903. The objectives of the survey were: To estimate the average yield per feddan and consequently estimate the total production of sorghum; to estimate the harvested area depending on response from the selected farmers by identifying planted and harvested area; and also the same sample or a sub sample can be used to collect information on cost of production and marketing of agricultural products. The survey design used was stratified two stage random sample with uniform sampling fraction (proportionate allocation). For collection of data the agriculture sector in the country was divided into "Irrigated" and "Rainfed" sectors. Rainfedsector was further divided into "mechanized" and "traditional" sectors for the purposes of sampling designs. The country prepares Balance Sheet Cereal of and has a methodology for assessment of Food and Nutrition Security. The paper also outlined the existing Market Information System for Crop and Livestock.
