Legon, Institute of Statistical, Social, and Economic Research, University of Ghana, The Ghanaian farmer continues to suffer from low productivity because of inadequate supply of improved inputs (seeds, fertilizers, and agro chemicals) and lack of market access and farm credit.

Ghana - Agricultural sector review (English) Abstract. The agriculture sector in Ghana grew to about percent in owing to good rains and a bumper harvest. Agricultural exports accounted for about 77 percent of total merchandise exports with cocoa accounting for 73 percent and forestry products for.

Some vulnerable sections of society have seen their poverty increase rather than ease, especially women and food crop farmers (the majority of whom are women). Food crop farmers actually represent the group with the highest incidence of poverty (59).File Size: KB.

Many people are living in poverty and continue to use the land in such a way that it will continue to degrade natural ecosystems.

This affects everyone. The powers that are governments and aid agencies are all looking for the big answers but really if we start at the back. Ghana’s agricultural sector has two faces.

On the one hand, Ghana continues to face food security problems due to stagnating productivity in the food crop sector and undeveloped internal food markets. On the other hand, horticultural exports have been increasing and. There is a huge production and yield gap in both fruits and vegetable in Ghana, according to the findings of a new study.

The study conducted in by Ghana Institute of Horticulturalists (GhIH), and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), of the United Nations shows a huge production and yield gap in both fruits and vegetables in Ghana.

Investing in Ghana's Cash Crops SECTOR OVERVIEW. Agriculture is the main driving force behind Ghana's economy, accounting for approximately 42% of the country's GDP and employing 54% of its work force.

Ghana is the world's largest cocoa producer after Cote d'Ivoire. Ghanaian cocoa is grown by small-holder farmers.

Real income is low and there is an abundant supply of cultivable land; consequently, public investment in Cited by: 2. About 52 % of the labour force is engaged in agriculture, 29 % in services and 19 % in industry. Approximately, 39 % of farm labour force is women.
