The Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA), envisions to strive for a modernized agricultural sector that will contribute to food security, employment opportunities and reduced poverty for Ghana’s population. Farmer-based Organizations (FBOs) have therefore been identified and promoted as one of the avenues to achieve this goal. FBOs provide opportunities for farmers to benefit from economies of scale, better bargaining power and a stronger voice in policy development. Well- organized FBOs promote farming as a business, with linkages along the product value chain.

The National Farmers Day Celebration was instituted by the Government of Ghana (PNDC) in 1985 in recognition of the vital role farmers and fishers play in the Ghanaian economy. This day is celebrated on the first FRIDAY of December every year to motivate our gallant farmers and fishers to produce more. From its modest beginning when award winners received a cutlass, pair of Wellington boots and a transister radio, today prices include a fully furnished three bedroom house, tractor with accessories, duoble cabin pickups, outboard motors among others.
