The Upper East Regional Director of Agriculture, Francis Ennor is encouraging the people of the Upper East Region to take advantage of the government’s flagship agricultural programme; Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) and venture into farming.
This, Mr. Ennor said would help consumers cut down on their personal expenses, particularly as prices of food products continue to soar.
He said this when he spoke to Mercy Yamtot on A1 Radio’s News Link today, August 23, 2022.
“For the consumers, I have been preaching that if everybody, particularly those with land, engages in farming. The government has made the PFJ available for all. Why not? If you have viable land here, you can produce some food yourself.”
“Even if you have a small land within your house, why not put it under vegetable production so that you will cut down your expenditure? That is what I have been advising my colleague regional heads of departments. Don’t let any land go waste.”
Earlier, the Upper East Regional Director in charge of Food and Agriculture, Francis Ennor has stated that the prices of food prices would continue to soar because of the continuous increase in the prices of fuel.
