On behalf of the Western Regional Minister, Hon. Dr. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah, I led the inspection of fertilizers meant for farmers in the Wassa East enclave under the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) program on Thursday, August 19, 2021.
This was to ensure that exact quantities of certified fertilizers were in stock and will be received by the respective farmers.
This was inline with Government’s regulation on fertilizer usage that must be strictly adhered to, to maximize food production in order to ensure food security and employment opportunities.
The inspection was successful. I encouraged the youth to take advantage of the programme (PFJ) to venture into agriculture because there are support mechanism puts in place for them.
I strongly hold the believe that this initiative will improve the yields of the farmers to ensure availability of affordable food stuffs at the local markets and beyond.
