This report presents findings from the first agricultural policy review conducted by the Monitoring African Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP) project in the United Republic of Tanzania. The report reviews key economic issues and the main policy decisions affecting the agricultural sector. In particular, it focuses on price incentives and disincentives faced by farmers and consumers of nine agricultural commodities which make up a significant part of agricultural production, imports, exports and diet. It also presents a detailed analysis of the composition and level of public expenditure to support the agricultural sector. The periods analysed were 2005 to 2010 for commodities and 2006 to 2011 for public expenditure. Finally, it reviews the impact of the maize export ban on farmers and consumers
