Ghanaian women educated on hydro- and aquaponic farming

Global Action for Women Empowerment, not-for-profit organisation (NGO) has equipped smallholder women farmers with skills in advanced farming practices and sustainability land use.

The participants were from Ho Municipal and Adaklu District and were taken through several best farming practices including proper application of fertilizers, weedicides, and pesticides as well as advanced farming methods and sustainable land use.

Mrs. Mary Esenam Elewokor, Director of Agriculture, Ho Municipal Assembly, and a facilitator at the training, stressed the need for framers to produce to meet the tastes and preferences of customers because farming was considered as a business.

She said the effects of climate change required deliberate efforts to increase agriculture productivity with more sustainable and advanced farming methods to ensure a resilient and food-secured future.

The Director mentioned precision agriculture, vertical farming, hydroponics, and aquaponics as some advanced farming methods and these, she said, would minimise environmental impact and enhance agriculture production and efficiency.
