This Agricultural Incentive Programme is designed to provide support to the various agricultural sub-sectors based
on the requirements identified and the recommendations of the stakeholders, with the intention of boosting the overall efficiency and productivity of the agricultural sector.

This programme is also designed to reflect the strategic direction of the Ministry that includes a renewed focus on increased food production, particularly at the primary level, and on the conservation of the environment. Through this programme, the Ministry is attempting to ensure that all available agricultural lands are kept under constant agricultural production by providing incentives which would encourage farmers to continue and even further expand their current production.

It is also hoped that through this programme, young persons would be encouraged to enter the agricultural sector and perhaps even encourage those who have left, to return.
