The increase in agricultural production will be achieved mainly through improvement of soil fertility and erosion control. This is possible through promotion of agroforestry practices.

Forestry Production & Research Program:

Forestry Division will take key forest management decisions based on fundamentals of forestry science and appropriate research.

Conservation & Watershed management Program:
