Ministry of Food and Agriculture urges Ghanaian growers to opt for newly-released tomato varieties

Dennis Abugri Amenga, the Bono Regional Director of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA), has urged tomato growers to opt for and cultivate the “raja and cobra,” new varieties of tomatoes released by the Crop Research Institute (CRI).

According to Amenga, these varieties have high yields and excellent matter content, good for processing, and high export demand. He said the new tomato varieties could also compete in the market keenly with varieties from Burkina Faso and advised interested farmers to contact the districts and municipal offices of MoFA in the region. Amenga also advised vegetable farmers to adhere strictly to spraying schedules to protect their farms against insects and pest infestation.
