‘Crop Care Ghana’, a Farmer Support Organization helping farmers with improved seeds and fertilizer to produce food to feed the nation and for export is handicapped with the spread of Covid-19.

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.

The Greater Accra Regional President of the Ghana National Association of Poultry Farmers, Gifty Tudor said at the moment, supply of day old chicks have been stalled and the internally produced ones are dying in dozens.

She said the closure of the major markets are also affecting the sale of birds and dressed chicken.  She appealed to the Government to ensure that every Region is supported to establish farms to produce day old chicks because of the closure of the Airports and the borders.
