Welcome to the Crops Division of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF). Our vision is to continue quality research into all areas of crops development and to sustain production for enhancement of the livelihoods of the people of Samoa.

Our mission is to produce high quality quantitative and qualitative research in order to enhance crops development and provide advisory services to improve and sustain crops production for the benefit of subsistence and commercial ventures.

The Crops Division aligns its work within the Government’s Strategy for the Development of Samoa 2008-2012 for “Improved Quality of Life for All”.  The Division’s role is to undertake research to improve food production and security and crops sustainability.  Three main sections carry out specific functions known as Research, Development and Advisory.
