Farmers want Ghanaian government to regulate sale of foodstuffs at farm gates

The Amoma Cashew and Mango Farmers Association has appealed to the Ghanaian government to introduce price regulatory measures for the sale of foodstuffs to middlemen. According to them, the escalating cost of production and the cheating of farmers by the middlemen could force most farmers to back out of business because they would not have the resources to purchase agrochemicals and other farm inputs to aid them in their farming activities since it had become ”a ritual that every season we incur losses from the initial production stage to the sale of the foodstuffs”.

They suggested the need for the government to regulate the system by providing weighing scales for them to weigh the food items at the farm gates for it to become a “win-win situation” for both the farmer and the buyer.
