The office of the 2014 Ghana National Best Farmer is organizing a breakfast meeting at the Tyco City Hotel, Sunyani on Tuesday, 17th February, 2015 at 10am. The meeting has become necessary in view of the pressing need to form a national federated farmer organization to engage effectively with all stakeholders to enhance farmer livelihood and boost agricultural productivity.
Also, as government seeks to engage farmers more effectively on policy towards improving food security, it has become apparent for a federated body that will represent all farmers in the country to make the necessary impact. The meeting will have in attendance, government functionaries, agricultural related businesses, investors, donor agencies, innovators, researchers, farmers’ association representatives and entrepreneurs.
Discussions will center on the role of the federated organization and the need to place farmers at the center of policy making in agriculture, investments and farm productivity.
