Like most rural Districts in the country, agriculture serves as the main economic activity of the people. It employs nearly 77% of the labour force in the District. They engage in diverse agriculture ventures such as oil palm, cocoa, citrus, plantain, cocoyam, maize, rice and vegetables as the source of livelihood. However, the rearing of livestock such as sheep, goats and cattle as well as poultry and fish farming is gradually catching up with farmers in the municipality.
