The Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) is the main institution responsible for regulating the agricultural sector, its growth and development. The first Ministry of Agriculture was formed in the Emirate of Trans Jordan as part of the thirteenth Cabinet reshuffle on 6/8/1939. The first agriculture-related law (before the formation of the Ministry) was the Plantation Law that was adopted in 1927. This was the beginning of the adoption of agriculture-related laws and regulations. Currently, the MOA has several departments responsible for animal and livestock, crop productions, rangelands and forestry, Marketing and agribusiness, in addition to extension services department, which recently joined the NCARE. The MOA aims to raise self-dependence in providing foodstuff and in guaranteeing the sustainability of production and resources without damaging the environment.
