The Agricultural sector of Ghana remains a major contributor to Ghana's GDP, accounting for over 54%. It is sad to note that Ghana is a net importer of basic foods; raw and processed foods.

Instead of depending on our local produce, the country imports agricultural products such as rice for domestic consumption.

John Dumelo asked his followers why Ghanaians prefer imported rice to locally grown rice.

He expressed the fact that he was ready to engage Ghanaians on his social media platform, in a detailed conversation on what is affecting the love for the locally grown rice.
