Our Commodities & Themes define our focus areas as described in the CARDI Mandate and expounded on in the Strategic Plan 2018-2022.

CARDI has been identified as the only regional agricultural institution identified in the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas which has a critical role to play in the implementation and co-ordination of key Technology and Information Systems (TIS). CARDI, through national consultations in Member Countries is impacting on the regional food basket through commodity programmes – small ruminants, sweet potato, and other root crops, cereals and grain legumes, hot peppers and fruits and vegetables.


Each Commodity & Theme area gives access to programme overviews, recent highlights, and related publications. Continue the research by browsing our virtual library, and for even further information, do not hesitate to contact us.
