Department of Crops Development
The Department of Crop Development is responsible for the promotion of sustainable crop production through increased yields and expansion of hectarage for some selected crops. Its specific mandate is to address the knowledge gap at the frontline extension worker's level and specialized crop-based farmer organizations. It provides crop production technical services to enhance the effective diffusion of technologies released by the Agricultural Technology Clearing Committee (ATCC). The department also provides services for farm mechanization, migratory pest control, and seed certification.
