As the global economy has started to worry about 'growth' and 'environment' at the same time, our administration has promoted 'Low Carbon, Green Growth' as the nation's future vision. Agriculture is not only an essential industry that supports food production for mankind's survival, but also it provides the appropriate roles for the protection of the environment and leads to establishing green industry to balance the environmental processes such as supplying oxygen and preserving ecosystem biodiversity.
Rural Development Administration(RDA) was established in 1962 as a matrix of encouragement model of industry, and it has contributed to the development of Korean Agriculture such as 'Green Revolution' for self-sufficiency in staple grains, and has led 'White Revolution' to enjoy fresh vegetables in four seasons. However, Korean agriculture has had a harder time than ever, under the rough agricultural market-opening pressure through FTA(Free Trade Agreement) after the Uruguay round came out
Making a proactive stance, RDA has focused its effort for the improvement and advancement of Korean agriculture despite existence of non-favorable market environment and pressure.
NAS under RDA consists of 6 departments and 1 center, with 508 staff and serves for various research & development undertakings all over the country, guided by the national agricultural directions.
