Ghana: Kadjebi Dept of Agriculture meets farmers on Peruvian ginger

The Kadjebi District Directorate of the Department of Food and Agriculture (MOFA), in collaboration with Iribov Laboratories at Soga Kofe, has had a stakeholder meeting with farmers to introduce them to the new Peruvian Ginger.

The meeting was also meant to build the capacity of the farmers on the new ginger variety to increase productivity since the district wants to attract international markets for its high-yielding varieties like Peruvian ginger.

The stakeholder engagement had set the tone for the introduction of the new improved variety, the Peruvian Ginger which would be supplied by Iribov Ghana Ltd. to the farmers for planting. Iribov Ghana will then buy the produce from the farmers in a scheme called the Outgrower Scheme while MOFA provides backstopping to the farmers.
