The government through the Ministry of Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development has set up two new parastatals to increase agricultural production. The two new parastatals are:
1. Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development Authority which will focus on irrigation.
2. National Horticulture Authority which is being set up to revive the horticulture sector which used to be a huge earner of foreign currency.
