Export crops can improve Ghanaian farmers' lives

Ghana's First Lady, Mrs Lordina Mahama, has called on farmers to grow more export crops as they can both boost their incomes and enhance national foreign exchange earnings.

While making a speech in Sampa, a border town, in the Brong Ahafo Region, Mrs Mahama told the chiefs and people that earning more money from export crops would help to improve their living conditions.

Describing Sampa as ‘a major agricultural centre,’ and the people as ‘being known for their great contribution to food and cash crop production ’, Mrs Mahama commended them for their hard work and sacrifices towards building the national economy.

Nana Kwadwo Masa, the Chief of Sampa, appealed for the establishment of a Cashew Nut Management Board that would properly manage cashew nut production and marketing in the communities, most of which were engaged in the production of the crop.
