URBANET SENSITIZES FARMERS ON THE NEW AGRICULTURE EXTENSION POLICY


Agricultural extension services in Ghana have largely been provided by the public sector with a constant supply of useful extension messages, technical and administrative supervision, and logistical support. With dwindling public funding, decentralization and globalization, it has become imperative for the promotion of a more demand-driven, pluralistic extension and advisory services with the active participation of the private sector and other stakeholders. This situation triggered the development of a new agriculture extension policy for extension service delivery. The department of agriculture has begun implementing the new policy. To ensure that farmers get adequate understanding of the policy, URBANET and the USAID ADVANCE II project have been sensitizing farmers on the new policy. Farmers in the Gushegu, Yendi, Cheriponi and Mion districts have been the beneficiaries of the sensitization.
