Maize farmers in Ghana now have higher chances of increasing yield even in the light of unfriendly weather conditions due to climate change, after the release of Wynca Sunshine Maize High Yield Solution System.
The newly developed Crop Solutions Plan, has been piloted in nine different maize growing communities in the country, where farmers were able to record double yields.
Following the successes chalked through the pilot programme in collaboration with the Ministry of Food & Agriculture in areas such as the Upper Manya Krobo and Yilo Krobo Districts in the Eastern Region as well as the Nkoranza North and Nkoranza South Districts in the Brong Ahafo Region and lastly Boankra in the Ashanti Region, Wynca will be holding a field day on one of the demonstration fields this coming Thursday to increase awareness for its improved maize solutions.
“After several years of development process, we are very encouraged by the results of the first Maize High Solutions,” said James Zhang, Sales and Marketing Manager
“The partnership with MOFA is an excellent example of what can be accomplished when public and private organizations work together for a common good, providing powerful new tools to help farmers overcome climate change challenges and increase food production.” He added.
These results demonstrate the power of advanced technology to help the farmers despite the unpredictable weather conditions and increased crop volatility due to climate change. More than 90 percent of smallholder farmers depend solely on rainfall to maintain their crops.
As a complete agricultural solutions company, Wynca Sunshine also engages farmers regularly to ensure correct utilization of its products and also to boost agriculture productivity, added to the supply of Wynca Sunshine seeds, selected Wynca Sunshine herbicides, fertilizers and insecticides.
All these solutions are developed in line with the Ministry of Food and Agriculture’s requirements. Wynca Sunshine also collaborated with relevant departments of the ministry in five districts and nine communities to pilot the programme.
“Our plan is to get farmers to use Wynca Sunshine inputs correctly whiles increasing yields significantly, through correct application of production techniques. This we believe would go a long way to compliment the government’s agenda of increasing food production and creating jobs,” the company added.
