They are the Export Development and Agricultural Investment Fund (EDAIF) and the Stanbic Bank. Dr Barfuor Osei, the Chief Executive Officer of EDAIF, presented two tractors procured at a Ghc400,000.00, as prizes for the first and second national best farmers.

Mr Mawuko Afadzinu, the Head of Marketing and Communication of Stanbic Bank, presented a pick-up vehicle valued at GHc90,000.00 for the third national best farmer.

He said Stanbic Bank had for eight years been donating towards the celebration of the Farmers’ Day in recognition and acknowledgement of their hard work and for being the largest employer in the sector.

He said the Bank realised the significant contribution of farmers towards the growth of the economy, hence their continual support.

Mr Fiifi Kwetey, the Sector Minister, expressed his gratitude to the organisations for the wonderful show of support and called on other corporate bodies to support the celebration.
