Mr Ignatius Agbo, a 56-year old farmer from the Upper Denkyira East District, emerged as Ghana’s overall best farmer for the year 2011.

Mr Agbo received a building plan to put up a three-bedroom house at a place of his choice.

Mr Daniel Ankomah 35, from Assin South District who placed second received a tractor while Philip Kwaku  Agyeman, 44 from Dormaa Municipal Assembly, who emerged third National best farmer took home  a double-cabin Nissan pick-up.

At the ceremony, Vice President John Dramani Mahama announced that government is drawing up a comprehensive programme to resource agricultural research institutions, whose findings would be used as building blocks for high food production.

The increased production, he said would not only make Ghana self-reliant in food supply, but would also make the country a net food exporter to neighbouring countries and beyond.

Vice President Mahama announced this during the 27th annual National Farmer’s day celebration at Agona –Nsaba in the Central Region on the theme: “Grow more Food: Research for Sustainable Agriculture Development.”
