Two companies- RMG and Motor King Limited- have joined the list of companies providing financial and logistical support to make the 8th Annual Pre-harvest Exhibition and Conference successful.
Marketing Manager, Dela Nyarko, said RMG imports agro inputs such as insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, as well as high yielding hybrid seeds, mostly vegetables and maize.
He noted that most of the varieties of maize from RMG are being used in the three northern regions of Ghana and the Afram Plains.
The same varieties have been adopted in the government’s ‘Planting for Food and Jobs’ programme. In addition, the company provides technical and agronomic training for farmers across the country, working with associations such as Masara, among others.
Kenneth Nii-Addy, Chief Technical Officer of RMG, said
“RMG is pleased to say that a solution called ‘Belt Expert’ has finally been found to the fall armyworm threat across the world. This has been made possible through the ingenuity and innovative imaginations of RMG’s research, scientific and technical staff.”
“RMG is currently growing not less than 35,000 acres of its hybrid seeds around the country. We want our farmers to know more about this. We do it right; we provide actual solutions to their problems.”
Motor King Limited, the leading manufacturer of Motor King tri-cycles in West Africa, called on all to support the agriculture sector in Ghana.
It’s the leader in the provision of tricycles that have become an integral part of the transportation of farm produce in Ghana.
The World Food Programme, USAID, ACDI and the Ministry of Food and Agriculture of Ghana are partnering the organizers of the event.
It’s being sponsored by Yara, Kosmos, Ecobank, Hartoum, LK International, Foundries, Mel Consult, Interplast, RMG and Afgri John Deree.
Over 2,000 participants are expected in Tamale, the Northern Regional capital, to participate in the event.
The conference will see over 10 practical and engaging topics being discussed by knowledgeable and skilled individuals in agric and other related sectors.
