Agriculture in Ghana
Africa RISING technologies offer Ghana farmers opportunity to earn three times more
Results from an indicative cost-benefit-analysis of use of Africa RISING technologies in northern Ghana show that farmers are getting more economic returns from adopting the project’s technologies.
For instance, the mean benefit-cost ratio (BCR) for the technologies is 4.2 indicating that the farmers earned three times more (300%), over and above their total expenditures when using technologies by Africa RISING.
The results also show that the mean returns to labour when a farmer adopts these technologies is GHC 49.1 (USD 12.4)/person day compared to the average daily wage rate of GHC 5.4 /per day in the project research zones. This means that Africa RISING technologies on average can generate a daily net return to labour nine times greater than what a farmer can earn in a day if they are involved in casual work in the project intervention areas.
