Chief Executive of ‘Crop Care’ William Ahiadormey told Radio Ghana how the threat of the virus is affecting preparations towards this year’s farming season in June.

Mr Ahiadormey suggested measures that Government must take to prevent the spread of Covid-19 while asking that provisions be made for farmers to continue to farm without hindrance in order to ensure food safety and security.  He called for immediate steps to address the challenge.

Women in the Poultry Value Chain have been speaking about the negative effects of Covid-19 on the industry.
