    Abstract

    Countries successful in achieving growth and equity throughout their development process could provide continuing gross flow of resources to agriculture in the form of technical, educational, and financial elements combined with proper institutions and policies to increase agricultural productivity. The main purpose of this study is to analyze the impact of institutional differences in governance, health and markets on the overall agricultural performance of Sub-Saharan Africa countries. Government spending, corruption control, and lower mortality rates at birth imply better governance and health situations in the countries and had significant positive impact on the value added by agriculture to the GDP of those countries.
