English Abstract: The Sudanese mainstay economic sector, agriculture is facing a multitude of difficulties. Among them are the continuous high costs, direct and indirect taxation, inefficient macroeconomic policies and rampant inflation. Formal and informal financing, are vital for the revival of the agricultural sector. However, with the continuous inflation rates which generate higher costs of the agricultural inputs, and the lower consumption ability, farmers eventually face loan default. The banks suffer losses which they restore by minimizing their financing volume to the agricultural sector, raising interest rates, even though their financing modes are under the pretexts of Islamic structure and limit the finance to the short terms. The solutions are framed in the macroeconomic adjustments, e.g., minimizing inflation, zero-tax mode and respecting land rights.

The problem definitely lies within the governing administration and management of resources. Under the current administration, it is hopeless situation.
