The University of Ghana Soil and Irrigation Research Station, at Kpong, has some fantastic rice fields - uniform in colour, well irrigated and clearly ahead of other rice fields nearby. Greater understanding of rice farming, including inputs, pest management and harvesting/post harvest methods is essential if our farmers are to realise the true potential of their labours. Rice is becoming more and more popular as a crop - and the University team are clearly developing the skills, but how can these skills reach those who need it to feed their families and generate the cash from their crops to send children to school?
