The Ghana Chamber of Agribusiness has appealed to the Ministry of Food and Agriculture to provide more extension services to farmers across the country.

The Chamber made the call in a press statement signed by one of its senior executives, Anthony Selorm Morrison.

The Chamber said it has become necessary for more extension services to be offered to farmers because of the reported invasion of cereal farms by army worms in some parts of the country.

“The pests intelligence control unit of Ghana Chamber of Agribusiness Executives can confirm the invasion of cereal farms in the country by army worms and calls on the country’s Ministry of Food and Agriculture to act with urgency,” according to the statement.

“The Chamber urges the ministry to release logistics to the agricultural extension officers across the country to go round farming communities to give valuable extension services to worried farmers,” it added.

It said, “By this release, the Chamber sends strong warning to the agrochemical dealers in the country not to exploit distressed farmers through hoarding or price inflation which will bring severe consequences to consumers.”

“In furtherance to our call, we wish to remind the Ministry of food and Agriculture to re-evaluate the ‘Planting For Food and Jobs’ campaign to avoid the occurrence of the above.
