PlantwisePlus in Ghana

Around 70% of farmers in Ghana are smallholders, playing a pivotal role in food and cash crop production. PlantwisePlus is working to empower these smallholder farmers to produce more high-quality crops sustainably.

PlantwisePlus activities in Ghana are working to improve extension services for the country's female farmers, who have limited access to extension services due to various challenges. Other key projects include assessing natural enemies and parasitism of the invasive fall armyworm, which has ravaged crops in the region.
