Functions And Responsibilities

The Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security is saddled with the responsibility of overseeing the overall agricultural development process in the state. Hence agricultural policies which are aimed at improving both the economic and social cultural status of farmers irrespective of scale and area of operation are articulated and implemented by the State Government through the Ministry

Except in areas where private efforts are negligible as in dairy production and where the private sector shows no meaningful interest, the Ministry does not involve itself in direct commercial production but encourages agriculture to become private sector driven

The role of the Ministry from the foregoing can be broadly grouped into provision of inputs, tools, equipment and facilities to enable farmers increase their productivity in their area/ field of operations and to process / store and market their produce orderly and also back the provisions above with technical know-how so that farmers can make the best use of them.
