Most recent Vacancies within the Ministry

Sector: Agriculture

Date of Issue: 4th November, 2019

The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has received fund from the Government of Sierra Leone towards the implementation of the NATIONAL FERTILIZER REGULATORY AGENCY (NaFRA). Fertilizer is considered as a critical input in addressing low productivity associated with soil infertility and soil nutrient deficiencies, there has not been any regulation on fertilizer quality control in the country. This undermines government’s effort to achieve food security and reduce the hunger gap. The need for quality assurance in fertilizer marketing and use is a concern for the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) in its drive to increase crop yields. Fertilizer dealers import and sell fertilizers without being checked by the government to ensure that they are appropriate and meet minimum standards to support crop growth and environmental sustainability. Issues of nutrient deficiencies, adulteration, short weight and misleading claims and utilization are not being addressed thus resulting to little or no response to crop growth as well as production and productivity. It is against this backdrop that the National Fertilizer Policy and Act were developed and ratified by Parliament in February and November 2017 respectively.
