Ghanaian Agriculture Industry

The Ghanaian economy is experiencing a structural change with an increasing importance of the services sector in the GDP. However, Ghana’s primary sector accounts for 19% of the GDP and employs 34% of the workforce. It is also an important source of income for many households (GSS 2017) so it remains essential to the country's sustainable growth and development because of its impact on employment, income generation and poverty reduction (Mensah 2019; Danso-Abbeam and Baiyegunhi 2020). Maize, root, vegetables and fruits, cassava, cocoa and forestry are the main primary activities. Ghana is the second most important producer and exporter of cocoa in the world after Ivory Coast. Cocoa is very important in terms of foreign exchange, employment, and a key driver of economic growth (Danso-Abbeam and Baiyegunhi 2020).
