Abstract


Agricultural sector plays a very important role in Armenian economy as it employs large share of the entire population and also has a large contribution to the national GDP while it agriculture employs large proportion of the population. In governmental projects and budgets the sector is given high priority. Despite this, the sector is encounters various challenges. This study attempts to examine the trends of agricultural production and to review the agricultural policies, programmes and projects implemented over a period of time in Armenia using a secondary data from various statistical agencies. Policies and projects implemented over the last decades had their big contribution to the overall agricultural output. It was found that there has been a considerable increase in agricultural output from both crop and livestock subsectors in Armenia. Despite this, the study found that Armenian agriculture is yet to attain its potential in crop production and animal husbandry in feeding the growing population and also attending to international market. Therefore, it is recommended that agricultural policies planning and implementation should be participatory and should be directed at supporting and encouraging farmers on export oriented products, application of new technologies and seed varieties. Also, an effective link should be established between research institutions and farmers with the help of agricultural extension services while farmers should also have access to credit facilities.
