Ghana: Seed companies launch umbrella body
The association, which is an umbrella organisation of 32 seed companies, ultimately aims at contributing to enhancing agricultural production that will improve farmers’ livelihoods and the overall development of the agricultural sector.
It has, therefore, positioned itself to support seed industry players to develop their niche to the fullest for mutual and collective benefits.
In a speech read on his behalf at the launch in Accra, the Minister of Food and Agriculture, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, said promoting the growth of the seed industry was crucial to transforming the agricultural sector, since quality certified seeds had the potential to boost agricultural productivity.
He said improved seeds also had the potential to enhance food and nutrition security in the country.
Hitherto, he said, the seed industry was dominated by the public sector but presently there was a growing recognition of the need to increase private sector participation in the industry.
He said the establishment of a national seed industry association offered the government and the private sector a unique platform for meaningful interaction to collectively address the challenges and constraints affecting the seed sector.
