Rice is cultivated in all the agricultural regions of Ghana. It is grown mainly in the valley bottoms, employing traditional farming practices.
Modern scientific methods of rice cultivation through mechanization and irrigation are gradually increasing, particularly in the northern savannah zone and the Accra Plains of the Greater Accra region.
Nevertheless, local rice cultivation does not meet local demand. Ghana has a total of 125,000 hectares of land under rice cultivation.
Ghana lost year imported about $3.2 M of rice.
Perhaps wasting resources and doing our local farmer’s disservice.
Buying local rice will create wealth for many local farmers and reduce unemployment in Ghana.
