Improving market access for maize farmers in Ghana

Agriculture is key to Ghana’s economy, contributing to about two thirds of the country’s GDP. Yet it’s still common to see small-scale farmers losing out due to poor quality of produce and a lack of negotiating power at markets. With high-quality information, delivered on time and through an accessible medium, farmers can improve their harvests and learn how to get the best price at the market, resulting in improved food security and poverty reduction.

In partnership with Concern Universal, Ghana, and four radio stations, this project aims to provide maize farmers in the Brong-Ahafo Region with the harvesting, post-harvest processing and market information necessary to make their farming businesses more profitable. This information compliments government investment in maize farmers and maize markets.
