The president for the Moringa Farmers Association of Brong Ahafo, Mr. Paul Yeboah, has urged Ghanaians and the various authorities to pay more attention to the farming and cultivation of Moringa and make better investment in its farming.
Mr. Paul Yeboah speaking on the Rite morning show said more serious cultivation of Moringa farming than we are currently seeing will help boost the economy of Ghana and Africa as a whole. He went ahead to list several uses of moringa which included its medicinal purposes and for purposes such as tea, soap, fertilizer, oil, shampoo, ointment, animal feed, among others.
He said these several uses of moringa would greatly boost the economy in the areas of the generation of revenue, jobs as well as increase the standard of living of farmers.
He said moringa farming has the potential of raking in as much as Gh c 2b annually if government gave it the needed attention and invested well into it.
