Welcome

  Welcome to the website of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry & Labour.
The Ministry is the institutional body of the state responsible for the 
formulation, articulation and implementation of all policies and plans relating to Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry & Labour. 
The administrative arm of this Ministry is responsible for:
   - The co-ordination of all programmes of the various Departments, Divisions and Units.
  - The maintenance of communication with local, regional and international bodies affecting the functions of the Ministry.
  - The administration of revenue and expenditure transactions approved by Parliament.

Some forty thousand (40,000), tree crops will be distributed to farmers across the country during this year.

Word of this came from Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry & Labour; Hon. Saboto Caesar, as he discussed the issue on radio, on Sunday 6th June 2020.

Minister Caesar said that while they will be distributing these plants, they want farmers to be honest and not use the limited water available from the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA), to irrigate their farms.

He also said that farmers whose fields have been severely affected by the extended dry spell, should wait until the rains begin during the current hurricane and rainy season, before they start the planting of their crops.
