Program Description
In the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, our whole program is devoted to small scale farming. The economies of scale brought about by mechanization is nonexistent in our tiny islands. Average farms range from 0.5 to 5 hectares.

Most livestock is for family consumption only, including poultry, swine and cattle. Currently, Saipan has only 3 commercial poultry operations and only one or two part-time swine producers.

Having a mild tropical climate, Saipan vegetable and ornamental producers are able to grow and harvest crops throughout the year. Most of our programs are designed to provide technical assistance to these producers in the areas of crop protection, soil and water conservation, Low Input Sustainable Agriculture, and others.
