Mesidam,(B/A), July 5, GNA – Nana Ampaabeng
Kyeremeh, the  2013 national best farmer
for cocoa and cashew has appealed to government to establish a cashew buying
and marketing Board for price stability of the commodity.

He said essentially, that would also guarantee
a fair and stable price for cashew farmers just like the Ghana Cocoa Board had
been doing for cocoa farmers over the years.

Nana Kyeremeh made the appeal in an interview
with the GNA on Thursday at Mesidam in the Techiman North District of Brong-Ahafo
Region.

He said the prices for cashew, both per
kilogramme and bag had not been stable in recent years and expressed the fear
that the situation could lead to the decline of the industry.

Nana Kyeremeh appealed to government through
the Ministry of Food and Agriculture to support cashew farmers with farm inputs
like the free supply of fertilizers and other chemicals to cocoa farmers to
boost cashew production in the country.

He advised the youth of the country to develop
passion for agriculture because that sector had wide range of business
opportunities for anyone to earn sustainable income for enhanced livelihood.
