The Government of Ghana’s greenhouse farming agenda is receiving a major boost with the training of some 120 specialists on greenhouse farming in Israel.
The Ministry of Food and Agriculture has constructed three greenhouse farming villages in Kasoa, Dawhenya and Akomadan and are expected to contribute to a boost in vegetable farming.
Each site comprises about 50 hectares of land each of which can accommodate up to 26 greenhouse facilities.
A first batch of 51 students have already completed the training in Israel with a second batch of 71 about to start their training.
The essence of the program is to give the graduates hands-on practical training in greenhouse farming practices.
