Rite Fm’s open interactive encounter with farmers and other key players in the agric value chain at the annual event known as Rite FM’s Agric Forum (RAF) has generated a lot of praise from farmers who attended the second edition which took place at inner yard of Ensign College of Public Health last Friday at Kpong in the Eastern Region.
Madam Naomi Adamtey, a farmer from Ayikuma in an Interview with Rite News at the just ended RAF has revealed that, as farmers it very important to attend seminars and forums like RAF to help improve their farming and agribusiness practices.
According to Madam Naomi, Rite FM Agric Forum is an eye opener to farmers to learn innovative ways of using machines, chemicals and modern technologies in their farming activities to improve their work, and also increase yield, prevent post-harvest loses and initiate value addition strategies.
She urged Rite FM to organize such programs frequently since it a good initiative.
Meanwhile Mr. Michael Gyatey, who is a vegetable farmer at Kordiabe in the Greater Accra region at the same event has complained that as vegetable farmers, when it rains heavily it destroys their vegetables and that they always run into lossses after investing so much into the business.
He therefore pleaded that the Government through the ministry of agriculture provide them green house for their farming, since agricultural sector is not on solid grounds and does not seem to motivate the youth.
