I visited several maize (corn) farmers in the North of Ghana near Tamale. The harvest was under way, the plants dry in the fields, and the farmers pulling the ears of corn off the stalks and piling them on the ground. Women and young men collected the maize into large piles, and then it was transported to a machine that removed the husk and kernels.
The program gives training and assistance to farmers to buy pesticides and fertilizers. As a result, their yields increased by 400 to 500%.
