The Canadian Government is set to inject a total of $120m US Dollars (125 m Canadian Dollars) into the Planting For Food and Jobs initiative being spearheaded by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture.


The agreement for the release of the funds was signed last week Wednesday at the Finance Ministry.


It forms part of the Modernizing Agriculture in Ghana (MAG) Project which forms part of efforts by the government to reverse the

declining growth of the agric sector over the past eight years.


With this facility, the next phase of planting for food and jobs initiative will be advanced, where it would be farmer centred. 


The government of Ghana introduced the programme after 2016 as part of its aim to boost agriculture and help make farming attractive and profitable. It started with supplying quality deeds to farmers and later built warehouses to cater for storage.
