Mr Randy Nkrumah, District Manager of the Agona Duakwa Depot of the Cocoa Merchant Company, has called on vegetable farmers to form groups in their communities, to help address specific challenges confronting them.

“Formation of the groups would go a long way towards enhancing productivity”, he said.

Mr Randy Nkrumah was addressing about 150 vegetable farmers from the Agona Duakwa Zone of the Agona West District.

The meeting also discussed among other issues, how the farmers would get market for their produce. 

Mr Nkrumah said plans were far advanced to train the youth who wish to get into vegetable farming.

He said “strengthening farmers’ groupings in urban vegetable production systems, is seen as one of the ways of solving farmers marketing problems”.

Speaking to cocoa farmers who also attended the meeting, Mr Nkrumah said proper fermentation was paramount, to avert cheating by cocoa purchasing clerks.

He said government was offering free fertilizers, aimed at improving the yield of cocoa farmers to enhance their income.

The District Manager advised them to prone their cocoa trees, cut unwanted trees, and co-operate with the spraying gangs to ensure proper application of the insecticides.
