Samanhyia (E/R), Dec. 13, GNA – Mr George
Ofori, the Kwahu Afram Plains South District Chief Executive (DCE) has called
on farmers in the area to practice commercial farming to help create employment
and economic growth.

He said it is important for farming to be
considered as a business venture and not an activity to feed households.

Speaking at the 34th National Farmers Day
celebration at Samanhyia, Mr Ofori said with the introduction of the coupon
system for farmers in the district, farmers can now have access to fertilizers
at a subsidized price to enable them produce on a large scale.

Mr Moses Bamfo, the District Agriculture
Director, urged farmers to invest in mechanization to make their work much
easier and produce on a large scale for a higher income.
