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.

The Ministry of Agriculture is continuing to provide support to Farmers, to help to cushion the economic impact of the Covid 19 Pandemic.

In August 2020, some 4500 sacks of fertilizer at the Agriculture Input Warehouse were sold by the Ministry to Farmers at half-price.

Delivering remarks at the session, Minister of Agriculture Saboto Caesar said the reduced price of fertilizer is intended to encourage more Farmers to plant crops to help the country achieve National Food Security and to increase export of locally produced crops.
