Agriculture must be Transformed into a Modern and Competitive Sector - Tufton

Abstract:
"It is distressing that our research infrastructure has been allowed to deteriorate and disintegrate over the years," he lamented, adding that "with the new paradigm of scientific focus for development, our research capabilities and infrastructure will have to be strengthened to provide cutting-edge technological advances in areas such as genetic engineering, biotechnology and nanotechnology."

The focus on science and technology will assist the transfer of information from farm to laboratory as well as the transformation necessary to propel the sector into the 21st Century and beyond, he argued.

"No longer can the sector survive with the current levels of production and productivity being achieved.
