“Working as ONE, for Agricultural Change and Development in Ghana.”
Our vision is to use our medium as a tool for economic empowerment and poverty alleviation, by providing our cherished listeners particularly farmers and other stakeholders in the Agricultural value Chain with reliable information for increased agricultural productivity and rural development through our well-designed programs. It is our desire to become one of the leading Agricultural radio stations in Ghana.
Rite 90.1Fm’s main goal is bringing various farming experiences to inform and motivate others to join in the promotion of Agricultural development using the medium of radio. The approach is simply to promote farming business through our radio programmes i.e. Use radio to focus on agricultural and social development issues but this time to a broader group by reaching some parts of the Greater Accra, Volta and Eastern regions.
The eventual aim of programs were to highlight mainly anything that feeds di- rectly/indirectly into the Agricultural industry/chain i.e. food production, Agro processing, Agro chemicals, Agric ma- chinery/Equipment, Transportation, packaging, Government policies, Non- governmental organizations, Consultants, Educational and research institutions and other stakeholders in the agricultural sector.
We have an estimated listenership of about 65,000 (based on a research conducted in 2008) in the three (3) major regions we currently cover. The station is also streamed online around the world on www.ritefmonline.org Our audience through our short code R-1406 also participate in all our programs whilst we use the SIMMA system for SMS bulk text messaging and our Farmers Phone to reach out to our numerous listeners to alert our them to listen and participate in our programs. Through this medium, they are informed about our upcoming topics to be discussed on our programmes.
Our targeted listeners/audience are predominantly farmers and others in the Agric value chain found in the farming & fishing communities in our reach; others are the middle & lower class earners within all our catchment areas.
The listening age group is between 20-60 years
