The Department of Agriculture was established on 1 January 1905 (1905-01-01) by the Dutch East Indies Government as Department of Agriculture Dutch: Departement van Landbouw) in 1905. It was later renamed Department of Agriculture, Industry, and Trade (Dutch: Departement van Landbouw, Nijverheid en Handel) in 1911 and Department of Economic Affairs (Dutch: Departement van Ekonomische Zaken) in 1934. During the Japanese occupation, agriculture affairs are handled by Department of Industry, Military Government Japanese: 軍政官武 産業部, romanizedGunseikanbu Sangyobu.[2]
