Africa-Press – Ghana. The Ningo-Prampram District Assembly and the District Agriculture Department have distributed 10,000 mango seedlings to farmers within the district. It stems from the governmental ‘Planting for Export and Rural Development’ program.
Mr Prince Ofori Boateng, Ningo-Prampram District Director of Agriculture, distributing the seedlings to the farmers at the Dawhenya Irrigation Farm, explained that the distribution was to enhance government’s One District One Factory initiative.
Boateng said a total of 30,000 mango seedlings and 10,000 coconut seedlings were expected to be distributed under the program for farmers in the district, adding, however, that the 10,000 mango seedlings distributed are captured under the first phase due to storage facility challenges.
