To celebrate Farmers’Day 2022, we have a special 5 + 1 offer for all farmers in the Greater Accra Area. When you buy five bags of compost, you get one for free. We hope to see you next week at our pick-up point!
We spoke with Joseph Quarschie, farmer and secretary of the Ashaiman Irrigation Farmers Association at GIDA, on how the 107 members of this association deal with fertilizer shortages in the Greater Accra Area, Ghana. The majority of the farmers want to shift to organic fertilizer and therefore they need additional ploughing machinery to save time and cost.
With the prices of chemical fertiliser currently being at a record high, due to scarcity of key nutrient elements and unprecedented global price increase in oil and gas, organic fertiliser is rapidly becoming an affordable and competitive alternative to chemical fertiliser.
Asase Gyefo is perfect for use in the greenhouse. Meet farmer Kelly Ampofo (28) who is in charge of greenhouse crop production at Unique Vegetable Farms Limited, located in the Ashaiman region, in the Greater Accra Area.
