Agriculture being the backbone of Grenada's economy, the Ministry of Agriculture is committed towards ensuring optimum utilization of the sector's resources in support of Government's agricultural policy of import substitution and export enhancement. The workshop's major objective was to formulate technological development programmes consonant with such policy. The workshop also sought to highlight the agricultural sector's institutional framework and technology policy as necessary pre-requisites for programme formulation. Implementation of Govemment's agricultural policy is adversely affected by the limited amount of financial resources allocated to the agricultural sector. This the need for programme prioritization to ensure that available resources are assigned to priority programmes. Praedial larceny and the limited capability of the Marketing and National Importing Board were identified as major to agricultural policy implemenution.
