The centre was established by the Government of Abu Dhabi to help reform the agriculture sector of the Emirate and provide on-farm support and marketing services. The Abu Dhabi Government is seeking strategic reform in the agricultural sector with an emphasis on the efficient use of available natural resources. Agriculture will undergo a transition from government subsidies and financial support, to a market led system.
