Govt to drive development of post-harvest tech to boost agriculture

The government will generate more initiatives and provide relevant incentives for the development of post-harvest technologies in a move to boost production in the agriculture sector, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said special allocations and research and development (R&D) grants would be provided to support these initiatives.

"It is hoped with these initiatives and R&D grants, new technologies and knowledge will be developed to boost agriculture sector production, thus contributing to the food supply for the nation, and the world," he said when launching the five-day 7th International Postharvest Symposium (IPS) 2012 here, today.
