He admitted that from that presentation, he was able to understand that the new Minister has a clear focus and vision for improving production and productivity in agriculture. Mr Sillah told the gathering that the appeal from Local Councils is for the agriculture Ministry to introduce practical methodologies and to change the way farmers work. He complained that the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MOFED) has been strangling agriculture by its reluctance to release devolved funds to Local Councils and the delay in receipt of such funds have a direct effect on the low yield and productivity experienced in the country. He stated that no disbursements have been made to Councils up to this time when farmers are now well into the planting season for this year.
