The Minister of Food and Agriculture, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto says the various interventions within the agricultural sector, such as the Planting for Food and Jobs, (PFJ), and the One-District-One-Dam, (1D1D), attest to the importance government attaches to the sector.

The Agric Minister who was speaking at the 35th Farmers’ Day celebration, in Ho, Volta Region, on Friday, December 6, observed that despite the gains made, it is still beset with challenges such as lack of a ready market, climate change and limited mechanization.

He said this notwithstanding government is re-doubling efforts to make the sector more vibrant.

The Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development, Mrs. Elizabeth Afoley Quaye for her part, said a number of interventions which were rolled out to enhance small scale fishing have paid off.

She stated that the fisheries closed season for artisanal fishing, this year was effective.

The Volta Regional Minister Dr. Archibald Letsa noted that the time has come for stakeholders to focus on harnessing the potential of technology to boost the small scale Agric sector.

He observed that small scale farming needs to be given the needed attention, saying its importance to the general agric sector cannot be over emphasized.
