Storage and Marketing -
Agona East District
Storage is a very huge problem most farmers in the District are grappling with. This contributes to very high significant post-harvest losses, especially during the bumper seasons. Crops such as cassava, maize and plantains which are much produced in the District rots at these times.
The insufficient storage facilities provides an avenue for investors to construct storage facilities such as silos to store produces for farmers at a competitive prices. Investors can also go into marketing ventures by purchasing from farmers in a marketing scheme or cooperative ventures between the farmers and other city centres of the country.
