Ministry of Agriculture
INTRODUCTION

The present day Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) was established in 1907 during the reign of emperor Menelik II. More than a century has been elapsed since agriculture was transformed in to an institution. During the last successive regimes, some measures have been taken to improve the Agricultural sector. Despite such measures, there have not been any improvements in the sector. As result, the past regimes did not able to eradicate poverty and guarantee food security. This happened mainly due to the absence of conductive policies and strategies. Above all, farmers were not free to use their lands for their own benefit.

The Government of Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia that has been established in 1991 designed the new agricultural policy and strategies. Agriculture Development led Industrialization (ADLI) that aimed at transforming the country’s economy is one of the national policies and strategies. It is aimed at transforming the country’s economy in to a well developed and prospered one.

Since the last seven years, 8 per cent average growth of productivity has been registered for the last 7 consecutive years. About 11.7 million small holder houses hold account for approximately 95 per cent of Agricultural GDP and 85 per cent of employment opportunity. The necessity to transform this huge sector is unquestionable. That is why; our government has demonstrated a strong commitment to agriculture and rural development sector through allocating more than 10 per cent of the county’s total budget.

VISION
