Green-ef Eco-Business Village in partnership with Council for Scientific and Industrial Research – Savanna Agricultural Research Institute (CSIR-SARI) has established a laboratory at Nyankpala, near Tamale, to produce organic fertilizer for improved agricultural productivity.

The laboratory will produce organic fertilizer to serve farmers in the Savanna Accelerated Development Authority zone.

Mr Sachibu Mohammed, Chief Executive Officer of Green-ef Eco-Business Village, who announced this, said the establishment of the laboratory leading to production of organic fertilizer at Nyankpala would ensure a reduction in the price of organic fertilizer in the SADA zone.

Mr Sachibu made the announcement at a stakeholders meeting in Tamale on innoculants and other agro-input supply in northern Ghana organised by Green-ef Eco-Business Village.

The meeting, attended by stakeholders in the agricultural sector drawn from Northern, Upper East and Upper West, Brong-Ahafo and Volta Regions, was to build partnerships for accurate and reliable market information for efficient and affordable agro-input distribution and supply.

It was also to identify and discuss market opportunities, challenges and proposed solutions for sustainable agro-input supply in the northern part of the country.

Mr Sachibu said the production of organic fertilizer at Nyankpala was expected to positively impact the prices of farm produce and incomes of farmers in the SADA zone since the product was expected to cost lower than those imported into the country.

Reverend Dr Benjamin Ahiabor, a Research Scientist at CSIR-SARI assured that the laboratory would produce organic fertilizer that would increase the yield of legumes.
