This is the first phase of the program in the district.
The ceremony occurred at Brenase, one of the sites for the nursery.
In all, over 600 farmers from various communities within the district benefitted from the distribution.
Speaking in an interview with Ghanadistricts.com, the DCE said government will do everything in its power to support farmers to make Ghana the hub for food in Africa.
He stated that this will go a long way to help government achieve its ‘Ghana beyond Aid’ agenda.
Mr. Asamoah advised the farmers to make very good use of the plants to help them put money in their pockets and also help to feed the people in the country.
