Minister Vatimi Rayalu says the collaboration promotes sustainable agriculture and communities.

“It is a tangible manifestation of our commitment to building and safeguarding a sustainable and resilient future for our agriculture sector and the livelihood of our communities.”

Rayalu adds that these members were appointed after consultations with other ministries and communities.

The board members incorporate farmers, members of the previous board, and those who are knowledgeable in the sector.

They will be working closely with the Ministry to highlight the protection of our environment, communities, and farmers.
