Rising Cost of Production Inputs Bother Farmers

Farmers across the country continue to express worry over the increasing costs of production inputs in the course of their farming business.

The costs, the farmers argue, lead to the registering of huge losses at the end of harvesting and thus leaving them with huge debts.

According to the Chairman for the Norvisi Seed Growers Association at Apegusu in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region, Mr. Tetteh Amenuvor, the cost of fertilizer, weedicides, chemicals and other inputs keep increasing on the market.

Speaking in an interview during the ‘Akuafo Sesen’ segment of the Rite Morning Ride to register his plight as a farmer, Mr. Tetteh said aside the high cost of inputs, there is no direct or ready market to sell their produce.

Though most farmers are enjoying good fortune, they are however calling for subsidies in farm inputs like fertilizers which they say are still expensive.
