Govt sets up two new parastatals to complement Command Agriculture

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.

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development, Cde Christopher Chitindi said the two parastatals will build on and complement the success of Command Agriculture.
