Impact of no-till technologies in Ghana
MetadataShow full item record
No-till with mulch was introduced in Ghana in the 1990s, and the package specifically responded to the needs of small-scale farmers. In 2000, it is estimated that 100,000 small-scale Ghana farmers practiced no-till on 45,000 hectares of land. The study examined the adoption rates and impact in three different zones of Ghana where no-till was introduced. In conclusion the study called for more research on technology, crop rotations and weed and pest problems.
