The winner of the maiden edition of the Israeli Green Innovation Competition, an initiative by the Israeli Embassy in partnership with the Stratcomm Africa innovative Ghana Garden and Flower Show, Mr. Prince Pius Nutsugah, has lauded the example of Israel in solving the challenges of post-harvest losses.
He says "Israel has developed a robust system to address post-harvest losses which Ghana can tap into to enhance our agriculture and help farmers reap the value of their hard work."
It is estimated that at least 30 per cent of Ghana's farm produce is lost annually through postharvest losses, a situation which significantly reduces incomes of farmers.
This situation, Prince Pius Nutsugah observed, is a huge loss to the country as well as the farmer.
The award winner gave a vivid account of his visit to Israel at a press briefing in Accra on Tuesday November 26th, 2019, at the Stratcomm Africa premises.
