The president mentioned that 100 divisional secretariat divisions have been selected this year for the agricultural modernization program. In the first phase, 25 divisional secretariat divisions will receive the necessary facilities, while the second phase will extend modern agriculture practices to the rest 75 divisional secretariat divisions, said the PMD in a statement.

The president reiterated the government's commitment to introducing modern agriculture to the country, emphasizing the government's willingness to provide necessary financial support and training for this endeavor.
