Happy 50th Independence Guyana

On this significant milestone of Guyana’s 50th Independence, the National Agricultural Research and Extension Institute (NAREI) extends heartiest congratulation to all Guyanese. As Guyanese partake in various celebratory activities it is important that our many successes are acknowledged.

NAREI is proud to have contributed to Guyana’s development and is looking forward to continue serving the public. The local agricultural sector holds many possibilities in the areas of alternative energy sources, food security, and wealth generation.

As we look ahead there is much excitement at the myriad opportunities that are on the cusps of realization. Current work on exotic fruits and vegetables are moving apace with the transfer of technologies to farmers imminent before year-end, in some cases. In addition, modern technologies such as shade house cultivation and hydroponics are becoming popular among the farming community.

NAREI believes that the application of Science in agriculture is critical to its ongoing evolution. The institute encourages persons to get involved in agriculture and experience true independence.
