Interesting comments from the great man. I also feel that the Govt shouldnt be encouraging the youth who do not have the passion into farming. As soon as they see that they can be paid......off course they will want to earn a living in the absence of nothing.
"It's not the number of people in farming, it's the quality of the farming and we shouldn't be pushing young bright people and say: 'Go to the land!'. That's not the way. I don't want to have people with talent reduced to farmers and miners and workers with their body. I want people to work with their brain, with their ideas," he said

Dear Program Presenters and Producers,
From what we read via this link, being done in the USA, is this something we will ever see in Ghana? In this political year, do we hear our politicians talking enough about their intentions for Agriculture and the protection and development of the farmer? Do we as media persons talk enough about Agriculture, I am just thinking aloud and asking these questions because I think we are not doing enough. If you are a media person, a radio presenter or a producer you must be thinking a long these lines in this political year. You have the power of equally being heard just as the politician.
Do farmers look out for what the various political aspirants are saying about agriculture and what they intend to do? Are farmers politically savvy enough to discern the rhetoric and what can actually be done or is being done? Let us raise the issues as media persons and bring our farmers to ask the right questions to protect and insulate ourselves from what is going on, to agitate for their concerns, challenges etc. and for the right thing to be done.
Is there enough on the political agenda, on the campaign platforms about agriculture for farmers to make informed choices.
The voices of farmers must be heard very loud and clear…we want in this political year the issues to be about Agriculture as we can see from else where, let us force our politicians to make agriculture a voting issue in this political year. Do we as Program Presenters and Producers in the media ask the right questions, let us discuss on our programs the effectiveness of decentralization of Agriculture in our districts, the challenges, the advantages, the opportunities and how we can make the life’s of those in the rural areas better. Let us raise other issues such as climate change and its effect on farming, incentives for Agribusiness, investment in the Agriculture sector, food production and security, effective agriculture policy etc.Food production is dwindling, our farmers are ageing, investment in Agriculture is not enough, policy to change how we farm is not strong enough, our politicians have used farmers for votes for too long. Let we in the media who have the power to raise the voice of the farmer in what our politicians have to say, do it more purposefully. We cannot allow anymore empty talk but let them walk the talk. Let all our politicians tell us how they intend to manage and improve agriculture. We in the media have been silent for too long, we have allowed politicians to dictate their agenda and only use us to get themselves into power. Let as be a voice for the ordinary farmers In Ghana today.
Let's hear the views of our farmers, let's talk to NFFAWAG, FRI etc. It's more about what the farmer wants than those who want the power.
