Ghana's young farmers to take advantage of tomato cultivation

District Chief Executive for Berekum West, Isaac Osei, has urged the youth to take advantage of vegetable farming - especially tomatoes - to better their lives.

Addressing a farmers' meeting organized by the Vegetable Growers Association in the district, he encouraged the farmers and the youth to step up their farming activities from subsistence to the business level in order to earn more from their sweat.

In a response to an appeal, the DCE assured them of the assembly's readiness to help them establish a tomato market center to create ready market for them and also to aid the assembly in its revenue mobilisation.

To drive home his commitment to support the farmers, he announced that the grading of farm roads in the area is to start, to ensure easy access to their farms and again make it easier to transport their produce to avoid them being locked up on the farms to rot, a situation he described as unfair to the hardworking farmers.
