It is well known that the vision and mission of Agricultural Research and Development in most developing countries is to ensure food self-sufficiency, production of raw materials for domestic industries, production of export commodities to maximize foreign exchange earnings and increase competitiveness in the world market by improving both quantity and quality of agricultural produces in a sustainable way.
