 of Agriculture & Lands

Agriculture is one of the pillars of Grenada’s economy as country focuses on achieving a significant level of food security.

Developing and implementing public awareness programmes and training stakeholders is the responsibility of this ministry.

The ultimate success of vegetable garden depends on how soil is prepared as it does on appropriate plant choice. this is also a crucial step.

Proper planting and protection is necessary to produce higher quality crops with much less wastage. It also leads to quality of crop and saving of money.

Harvesting requires art and practice as considerable amount of crop can be lost if proper harvesting method is not applied.

The restructuring and re-organization of the Ministry is essential to provide improved leadership and support services.
