With barely “close to 72 hours” to go, the second edition of the Rite FM’s Agric Forum known as RAF has become the cynosure across the length and breadth of the country.
Speaking to Mr. Evans Lawson, the Agriculture Director for Upper Manya Krobo District has acknowledged, “the brain and idea behind the event are laudable and beneficial to all members of the agricultural value chain.”
To him, the event is beneficial from the fact that both producers and processors of agricultural products such as agro chemicals, agribusiness personals, investors among others would include the participants; thereby creating an avenue for education and exchange of ideas among players.
The forum which will allow participants to suggest and ask questions would create networking hub for producers and processors. Mr. Lawson appealed to all to take keen interest in the upcoming exercise
The Committee’s Preparation so Far
Mr. Anthony Ayertey, a member of the Rite FM Agric Forum committee said, preparation is still underway, though far advanced. He added, over three hundred Agric business minded people are expected.
“The program was bore to aid farmers to excel in their farming endeavors and also to exchange technical know-how,” Mr. Edwin Larbi stated.
The event which will be held at the Ensign University College of Public Health come August, 11 would host processing companies, producers as well individuals to exhibit their products.
