While the traditional sectors have been the backbone of the economy, Government has embarked on a massive diversification programme, with the aim of expanding and developing sub-sectors. This has reaped major successes, over the years, as significant investments continue to be made to ensure advanced technologies are implemented.
In 2011, $9.2B was allocated to the agriculture sector, compared to $8B in the previous year. This has aided in the successful delivery of planned programes, under the Ministry's capital and current expenditure.
Huge sums are also being spent on training, to assist with good agricultural practices and improved productivity. $13,192 farmers in the ten administrative regions.

Give me a break, PNC did these 30 years ago, why you think there is an oil palm industry and others. Why after 19 years you talking about diversification, what you growing, greenheart? What the PPP should be talking about after this time is downstreaming and signing trade deals to take off Guyana's output. You guys are a joke. All you talk about is sugar an rice, well that was there since the British days. Surprise us with something we don't already know. Alyuh coming up shart deh Albutt.
In keeping with its aim to diversify agricultural products and increase the level of production, the Ministry of Agriculture launched a Small Farmers Group Financial Facility in January. The project falls under the aegis of the US $6.9M rural Enterprise and Agriculture Development Project (READ) and a US$22.9M Agriculture Export Diversification (ADP), Programme.

British Guianese kids in 1952 learned that teh main exports from BG were sugar,bauxite,rice, timber, gold, and diamonds. Guyanese kids in 2011 learn the same thing.

Guyanese are not scared of working hard, as the majority of emigrants have had to do in order to achieve something. Imagine if those left behind in Guyana had the same jobs to apply for back home, and the same level of hands on management to get the jobs done in time and within budget.

The PPP and PNC have instead filled important ministries with friends who were relaxed about the pace of things, or whether projects got completed on time and in budget.
