Ghanaians has reacted to the message of the Minister in diverse ways. People are congratulating him, pleading to reduce prices, request, and contributing on how to make the industry develop.

There is a concern about the rise in prices of farm inputs, which is affecting their businesses. The concern of the Veterinary Grandaunts is raised, as they are yet to be employed.

Another person made the suggestion that, the government should stop burning the excavators seized from illegal miners. Rather, the Minister should initiate the use of the excavators to construct irrigation dams and canals for all season farming.

This will aid the production of cash crops and other farm foods for export and feeding the country. It will lessen the high level of importation in the Agriculture Industry in the country. The concern about even importing large number of the tomatoes we used in the country, will reduce drastically.
