Today the 5th of December 2014 marks the 30th National Farmers’ day celebrations in the country.
The National Farmers Day is commemorated each year on the first Friday of December to celebrate hard working farmers and fisher folks all over the country and acknowledge the vital position they occupy in the nation’s socio-economic development.
This year's celebration is under the theme: “Eat what you grow”
Prizes are going to be awarded to deserving farmers and fisher folks in order of best practices and outputs.
The National Farmers Day celebration was established by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture to honour the nation’s hard working farmers.
Over 70 farmers will be recognised for their contribution to agriculture and the economy of Ghana.
In 2013, 58-year-old Alhaji Awudu Karim from the Kasena Nankana District of the Upper East region was adjudged the National Best Farmer.
