AMC was established in 1983 with the vision to realize national food self sufficiency. This vision placed the Bhutanese farmers at the core of all agriculture development activities. AMC aligned itself strategically to contribute towards the achievement of the vision through enhanced effectiveness and efficiency in Bhutanese farming practices. It embarked on the program to mechanize Bhutanese agriculture through use of appropriate farm machinery equipments and tools.
Over the years, AMC has partnered itself with the Bhutanese farmers to choose, create and innovate agricultural technologies and farming practices which are appropriate to the Bhutanese farm terrain and ecological conditions.
It has not only contributed significantly in the national goal of food self sufficiency but has also been an instrumental agent in alleviating drudgery in Bhutanese agriculture.
