Apayao is the top producer of cassava with 6.1 of the regional cassava production; second top producer of squash fruit 22.2% and third top producer of banana with 9.10%.

According to the data released by PSA in 2019, Apayao ranked 5th among the six provinces in CAR with a contribution of 7.8% or 323.7 MT out of the 4,157.6 MT fishery production in the region. Of this production, 234.9 MT came from inland fisheries while 88.9MT were harvested from 62.1 hectares of aqua farm areas in the province (PSA, 2019).
