Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says the Government would launch an Agricultural Marshall Plan in November to enhance food production.

He said the Plan would focus on the use of scientific skills and knowledge approaches, provision of fertilizers to farmers and requisite storage and irrigation facilities to ensure high productivity.

The Vice President said the nation had sufficient arable lands, water resources and space to increase production and that she would tap the experiences of other countries that had implemented similar plans in the past.

He said there were available road networks that would facilitate the process to leverage on the public-private partnerships to enhance the infrastructural needs.

Vice President Bawumia said this at a media briefing after the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) High Level Panel Discussion, in Geneva, Switzerland.
