The Chief Executive Officer of the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA), Charles Abugre, has called for efforts to harness the agricultural potential of the SADA ecological zone so as to ensure the country's food security, and reduce imports.

Abugre made the call on Thursday in Accra at the launch of a commercial agriculture investment guide for the northern savannah ecological zone of the country.

“The SADA zone holds major agricultural promise that when harnessed will not only make the country highly secure and less dependent on imports, but more importantly transform the lives of the zone’s inhabitants quite significantly -- the zone currently records lower performances in all major indices of socio-economic performance compared to the national average,” Mr. Abugre said.

The guide was produced by the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority with support from the Soil Research Institute, the Queiroz Galvao of Brazil, Ghana Investment Promotion Centre and the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

The guide presents information on business environment indicators, an inventory of natural resources for large-scale agriculture, including information on climate, soils and hydrography network, land suitability and effect of game-changing irrigation schemes on soil properties.
