The Agronomic Industry Act, Act 20 of 1992, makes provision for the establishment of the Namibian Agronomic Board (NAB), with certain powers and obligations as stipulated in the Act. Section 4(1) of the Act makes provision for the appointment of Board members for a period not exceeding three years as outlined in section 5(1)(b) thereof.

In addition to the Minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry’s governance under the Agronomic Industry Act, the NAB will also be monitored by the State Owned Enterprises Act, Act 149 of 2006. This Act came into existence on 14 September 2006.

  • Determine the number of Board members, with due regard to stipulations provided for in the Agronomic Industry Act;
  • Determine the requisite qualifications, experience or skills of persons to be eligible for appointment as Board members; and,
  • Advise the portfolio Minister on:
