The ministry of Agriculture policies are addressing strategies and initiatives that serve to the development of a stable agriculture. According to the Minister of Agriculture, the stable increase of the agricultural production will be achieved by improving the market supply, by reducing the gap between exports and imports and by supporting farmers and families that work in the agricultural sector. In the past years, the government has seen the use of the new eco-friendly technologies in the agricultural sector as very important for the increase and the efficient production of agricultural products and the reduction of residue amounts.
According to the experts, the ecosystem, water-supply and infrastructure’s dependence on climate changes affects directly to the agricultural production. The Ministry has announced an awareness campaign which is introducing and informing the farmers on the environmental standards in agriculture, on the dangerous consequences that come by the usage of chemical substances during the agricultural processes, on the old machineries that damage the soil, etc.
A report published by the “Agro Capital” USAID project, on the agricultural development highlights that a stable agricultural sector can be achieved through a reasonable environment integration, a renewable economy, social equity, a stable productivity in time and also the improvement of living standards. USAID’s strategy is simple: higher production in less soil. This strategy is focused on the environmental stability, in the agricultural supplying chain and multi-usage soils. These practices are promoted throughout the world by USAID, aimed at developing the farm producing systems, a soil quality improvement, a pesticide and herbicide usage reduction, an environmental management system usage, ect.
