Pillay says the ministry will encourage more mechanization of crop cultivation and harvesting.
”We will also focus on improving the delivery of agriculture support services to our farmers, improving agriculture means that will directly support our farmers, our households and our communities. We will continue to support our agro processes and exporters as they add value to our produce and expand our export opportunities.”
