The DCE for Birim South Mr Asare Danso has urged women to invest in farming as a business and not only engage in it to feed the family. He said farming needed careful planning, dedication and capital, which many women were capable of and so they did not have to see large scale farming as a preserve of men alone.

“If you can farm and do other businesses to support the family, you can with a little more effort and commitment invest more into agriculture.”

Mr Danso made this pronouncement during a town hall meeting held at Akyem Swedru to inform the people about some of the achievement of the government for the past 3 years.He said it is time Ghanaian farmers took to modern scientific farming practices and appealed to those in rural communities to adhere to the advice and guidance of agricultural extension officers so as to improve production.According to him,about 30% of women in the district was able to join the planting for food and jobs which is one of the government flagship programme.He added that he is optimistic that the income levels of farmers would improve by the end of this year as the government had started various programmes to boost agricultural production.
