Department of Agricultural Research and Technical Services (DARTS)
Mission Statement & Mandate
Structure and Organisation
The Department of Agricultural Research and Technical Services (DARTS) is a technical department in the Malawi Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MAI) and is responsible for conducting research on problems and constraints that beset the countrys agricultural sector. The role of DARTS has become more important with the realization that Malawis growth in agricultural output is increasingly becoming dependent on the development of scientific and technical capacity to develop new mechanical, chemical, and biological technologies. This is because the expansion in agricultural land is no longer possible and farm inputs and implements have become increasingly expensive, hence inaccessible to many smallholder farmers.
