The District Chief Executive (DCE) of Sefwi Bodi District in the Western Region, Solomon Fuachie has called on farmers to practice a multiplicity farming system in order to attain resounding economic benefits.
He was addressing a large crowd that of farmers that had organized to witness the district’s ceremony to mark this year’s farmers’ day.
Giving a keynote address on the theme ‘Agriculture: A Business Response to Economic Growth’, the DCE reiterated the need for farmers to recognize farming as a business sector and hence refrain from a single farming practice.
“There is a greater need to recognize farming as a business, which will result to a very great economic growth for persons and the country at large. Most farmers do not recognize farming as a lucrative business….there is now a lack of cocoa growing lands and hence the need to resort to a diversified system of farming, now no matter your profession every one of us can engage in any of the farming systems in order to achieve a very good economic status” He told the crowd.
Meanwhile, Mr. Fuachie admonished the youth to also recognize farming as a profession and hence engage themselves in farming since the district is ever ready to render any support and assistance that would be needed by them.
