2023 National Farmers Day
The 2023 National Farmers Day, which marks its 39th edition, will be held on December 1, 2023, at the University of Mines and Technology (UMAT) in Tarkwa, in the Western Region
The National Farmers Day at the national level in many years was celebrated in a day, this was, however, revised to a five-day agricultural fair and a grand Durbar.
The essence is to allow farmers to network with industry players and learn and adopt new technologies, machinery, and research innovations in agriculture.
The fair also offers a business platform for various stakeholders to link up and form partnerships that will ensure the overall benefit of their farm enterprises.
Dubbed “Delivering smart solutions for sustainable food security and resilience”, it is aimed to achieve food security in the country within the context of an increase in population growth and its accompanying food system issues.
