Guyana’s Agriculture Minister Zulfikar Mustapha said that his ministry’s submission for the 2020 emergency budget would target pressing issues in the farming sector and the urgent needs of farmers will take precedence in the budget.

The budget is also likely to bolster the Ministry’s extension capabilities for disease management and chemical use management in a scientific manner.

The minister also stated that he is eager to engage all stakeholders as well as private-sector agencies to formulate policies to further strengthen the sector.
