Nana Owusu Achiaw, member of the Council of State, representing the Ashanti Region, has urged the youth to utilize technology in farming to help attract investors.
Speaking in an interview with Omanhene Yaw Adu Boakye on Maakye, aired on Kessben TV and Kessben FM, Nana Achiaw said that will also help increase yields in the “One District One Factory” initiative.
“We have to increase technology in our farming system to make it more attractive”
He further said “A young man can be intimidated in his effort to farm because of the challenges he may encounter. Using my place for example, where I have a central pivot irrigation system, any bank will give me money to invest in my farm because they know even if it doesn’t rain there will be water.
The president of Ghana, Nana Akuffo Addo on his tour to the Ashanti Region and to inspect his flagship program “One District One Factory” visited Nana Owusu Achiaw at his 1000 acre maize plantation. The president, amazed with his effort lauded him for his vision.
