Agriculture is an indispensable sector of Somalia due to the survival of the country's population, its contribution to national income and employment, providing raw materials and capital to other sectors, its direct and indirect impact on exports, imports, and also its contribution to biological diversity and ecological balance. This literature evaluated The Agricultural Structure in Somalian. Farmers in Somalia faced many challenges that affected their livelihoods, such as drought, lack of agricultural extension service and farmer knowledge, lack of quality seeds, and lack of appropriate irrigation systems. The main material of the literature was obtained from secondary data sources, the researchers also collected information from the literature and were carried out using all kinds of printed research, statistics, books, and journals related to Agricultural structure in Somalia. The finding of the literature reveals that farmers are not producing enough products for the country due to the continuation of their traditional practices as they cannot find adequate technical and support services from the government and other institutions. Also, the finding of the literature reveals that there are challenges and constraints that have a bad effect on whole the production for a long time. Since then, several types of research have been conducted in various different countries—focusing on challenges facing crop production. For this reason, agricultural production is low. If these issues and challenges are not met in their true perspective, Somalia's economy in general and the rural economy, in particular, cannot sustain itself.
