Tobacco is the most important crop. It must be irrigated and cultivated on the best soils. Andorran tobacco is usually blended with tobacco from the east that has better quality. In recent years, Andorra has started growing medicinal plants and aromatic herbs to find new products that could possibly replace the not so profitable tobacco.

Livestock breeding, especially sheep, is also important. Timber from the forestry industry produces export earnings. No fishing of economic significance exists.
