The Feed the Future Ghana Agriculture Technology Transfer Project established a farmer learning center on urea deep placement (UDP) technology in Tamale. The communities farming the area achieved fourfold increases in rice yields through the adoption of UDP and better agricultural practices.
IFDC President and CEO Dr. Scott Angle recently traveled to the organization’s projects and offices in Accra and Tamale, Ghana, and Nairobi, Kenya. Angle visited farmer learning centers implemented by the Feed the Future Ghana Agriculture Technology Transfer Project. The project introduces new yield-enhancing technologies to farmer communities. He also discussed food security with donors and partners and attended a Science Day hosted by the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) in Nairobi.
