Atiwa East Agriculture Department appeals for rice milling facilities

Mr Samuel Ofosu, the Atiwa East District Agriculture Director has called on the government and potential investors to partner the assembly to acquire modern rice milling facilities for rice farmers in the district.

ADB to support local rice farmers to alleviate financial challenges

The Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) has said that it will replicate its investment model in the poultry industry for rice production to reduce financial challenges in the sector.
