A. Policy–making, planning and supervision;

1. Figuring out due policies and strategies relevant to agriculture and rural tribal development within the framework of sustainable Development setting ;

2. Investigating and operating on needed production to meet national requirements to agro-crops, animal proteins followed by export promotion in regard with comparative advantages and ongoing commercial codes and conduits;

3. Preparation and execution of updated information statistic system on agricultural rural characteristics ;

4. Derivation of standards and codes for planning in the areas of establishments and infra-structural setting required for production and producers in the sector;

5. Surveillance and evaluation of all performances and actions made by affiliated institutions followed by due coordination and synergy.

B. Research, Extension and Education

1. Launching applied research and development initiatives on following areas :

- Water and soil resources, breeding of new seeds and seedlings, genetic modification , livestock and aquatics raising, a forestation and watershed management , plant protection and pest control;

- Introducing the state of the arts of technology in biotechnology and genetic engineering within the sector proportional to prevalent climatic features;

- Rising productivity index, reducing wastes and qualifying the agro-crops;

- Producing effective medicines and biological inputs for combating diseases out-broken amid human and animals ;

2. Conducting applied/scientific training or techno-vocational courses for empowering practitioners, producers and clients of the sector under the approved acts and regulations.

3. Studying, designing and optimizing the patterns and practices associated to forming systems supported by regular monitoring and evaluation process.

C. Natural resources and watershed management

1. Comprehensive studying and surveying on national watersheds in favor of planning watershed management schemes to ban soil erosion and proper exploitation of arable lands and natural resources;

2. Protection, survival and expansion of forests and rangelands as well as sound and renewable use of natural resources in compliance with law and order of sustainable development;

D. Agro–infrastructures and rural development

1. Enhancement of agro-machinery proportional to climatic aspects and cultural settings of varying areas supported by due technical services needed;

2. Forwarding land–consolidation schemes, renovation of farms and orchards for higher productivity and efficient implication of basic inputs favoring greater performance and yield;

3. Planning on soil protection and reclamation for wider impacts and performance in irrigation process;

4. Focusing on small–scale schemes leading to improved water harvesting in coordination with the Ministry of Energy;

5. Making actions in building, maintenance and operating fishery ports and establishments coordinated with other line disciplines;

6. Emphasizing on Nomadic movement and sedentarization within the context of areal integrative schemes;

7. Development and supporting “processing plants” in agricultural rural areas;

E. Agro-businesses, livestock and aquatics;

1. Taking initiatives for higher productivity of farms and orchards via advising prompt farming patterns in view to water scarcity, production capacity and climatic conditions;

2. Providing veterinary services in animal farms plus controlling joint animal–human diseases, quarantine and hygienic attempts in slaughter-houses, pastures, farms, feed-plants, cool-houses, stores, etc;

3. Monitoring and supervision on basic inputs import acquired by the sub–sectors’ practitioners;

4. Planning and execution of core projects related to conservation and extension of livestock, aquatic and poultry resources followed by genetic modification and feeding qualification;
