The collaboration is expected to promote rice cultivation in Botswana.
“Rice is the third most imported cereal and it contributes substantially to the country’s escalating food import bill,” said Tiny Diswai, deputy permanent secretary of the Ministry of Agricultural Development and Food Security.
AA Managing Director, Miles Nan, said the collaboration was motivated by a common vision of tackling Botswana’s agricultural technology limitations.
He added that it would increase a cooperative framework for the country’s agricultural development.
