Predictors of inoculant-based technology adoption by smallholder soybean farmers in northern Ghana: implications for soil fertility management

01 Oct 2023  |  BioMed Central
The study investigates the factors influencing the adoption of inoculant-based technology among smallholder soybean farmers in northern Ghana, focusing on the Tolon district. It highlights the importance of inoculants in improving soil fertility and farm yields, especially in regions with low soil fertility. The research identifies key determinants of adoption, including farmer characteristics, farm-level factors, input variables, and institutional factors. The study finds that while inoculants are cost-effective and environmentally friendly, their adoption remains low due to factors such as lack of subsidies and limited access to extension services. The Savanna Agricultural Research Institute (SARI) plays a crucial role in inoculant production and dissemination. The study emphasizes the need for increased awareness and market development for rhizobium inoculants to enhance adoption and improve agricultural productivity.

2019: Year of Return for African Diaspora

29 Jan 2019  |  Inter Press Service
In 2019, Ghana launched the 'Year of Return' initiative to encourage Africans in the diaspora to reconnect with their roots, marking 400 years since the first Africans were brought to America as slaves. The initiative, announced by President Nana Akufo-Addo, aims to unite Africans globally and commemorate their contributions and sacrifices. The event has garnered significant interest from the African-American community, with many expressing a desire to visit Ghana. The initiative also ties into broader historical and legislative efforts, including the US Congress's 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act and Ghana's policies to attract Africans abroad. However, some, like media practitioner Amber Walker, call for a more nuanced acknowledgment of the role of Africans in the slave trade and suggest a reconciliation process similar to post-apartheid South Africa.
