He said this during the official launching of the Kumasi office of the company over the weekend.
At a colourful ceremony to outdoor the new office, the managing director, disclosed to GARDJA that, Ashanti region is a hub of agro-business hence the need to get closer to our farmers, by providing them with the necessary advice on how to apply chemicals on crops and also make the inputs available to the farmers on time to avoid unnecessary delays in getting input during planting season.
The company which has been in operation for the last four years in Ghana has helped small holder farmer groups particularly in the north.
“We have engaged the service of agronomist to provide technical support service on how to maximize its output”, he said.
He also implored Ghanaian farmers to take advantage of technology in the agro-business in order to meet the global market.
He disputed the fact that farmers are poor; farmers shouldn’t be poor with the current supply of modern agro inputs and technology to advance their course.
