The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has introduced new technology to be used in harvesting cassava.
Five of the new Cassava harvesters have been presented by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, C.S.I.R. to the Ministry of Food and Agriculture.
Speaking at a short ceremony in Accra, the Minister of Food and Agriculture, Mr Clement Kofi Humado, said the equipment was in line with the ministry’s policy to promote cassava production, processing and marketing.
“For some time now cassava cultivation has predominantly been practised on a subsistence scale with the application of rudimentary technology, resulting in low productivity", the Minister said.
