Feed the Future Ghana Agriculture Technology Transfer Project
The Feed the Future Ghana Agriculture Technology Transfer Project
is seeking to increase the availability and use of agricultural technologies to maximize and sustain productivity in Northern Ghana. The project is funded by Feed the Future Initiative/USAID. Implementation partners include the Ghana Agricultural Associations Business & Information Centre (GAABIC), the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences of Iowa State University (ISU), and the Centre for Development Innovation of Wageningen University & Research Centre (WUR-CDI).
Improving Seed-Sector Value Chains in Ghana
The Feed the Future Ghana Agriculture Technology Transfer Project (2013-2018) is introducing new technologies to improve the seed sector in Northern Ghana. The project is also exploring ways to identify sustainable solutions that will increase competitiveness in the rice, soybean and maize value chains.
Requirements for Successful Technology Adoption
New technologies must be effectively and efficiently introduced to create a sustainable private sector supply. There is also a demand for information dissemination, training and other collaborations. Stakeholders are required to approach agriculture as a business, and their work must increase revenues.
