The primer starts with a brief discussion of the importance and contribution of agriculture to the country’s economy and its performance in the last three decades. This is followed by a discussion on the prevailing agricultural structures and institutions. A brief review of past agriculture policies as well as, current developments and policy thrusts likewise form an important section of the primer.

The primer also focuses on regional and global trading arrangements and their implications on the sector. A section is devoted to the levels of support for agriculture, and the resources, services, and delivery mechanisms of the country’s agriculture government office. Each primer ends with challenges and issues facing the sector in the first quarter of the millennium.
