Welcome to the new Ministry of Agriculture, Lands, Housing , Co-operatives and Fisheries website, Nevis. We are excited to finally unveil this website after tireless hours, days and months of hard work and dedication to the task. We hope you like the result and welcome your comments as we strive to improve and fine tune the site over the coming months. The technology landscape has changed dramatically over the years and we will strive to keep at the forefront of this growing phenomenon. The fact that we digest online information in many ways, we have designed this website to be accessible via your computer, tablet and even your smartphone. Therefore, whether you are a budding student, farmer or a stakeholder in the Agricultural Industry, we will have something for you.
The launch of this website underscores the thrust of the Ministry and Department of Agriculture towards ensuring that food safety and security continue to be the major pillars in the success of this important industry. Therefore, the plans and programs which we have crafted within the Department of Agriculture will ensure that production and productivity will continue to increase, thus resulting in enhanced quality and quantity of products.
Through this website we will provide the linkages to our allied agencies including CARDI, IICA, the University of the West Indies, the East Caribbean Group of Companies, Taiwanese Mission and the Nevis Growers Co-operative. As such, visitors to this website will have access to a wealth of information which will assist them in the decision making process so as to maintain or rekindle an interest in Agriculture.
I want at this time to pledge my Ministry’s continued commitment to the development of the Agriculture Industry here on the Island of Nevis. We in the Ministry and Department are confident that we can restore Agriculture to its former glory days of “being the bread basket of the Federation.” The task ahead is a challenging one but with the dedicated team at the Department level, we are of the firm conviction that this is possible.
Minister of Agriculture, Lands, Housing, Co-operatives and Fisheries
