3. The educational sessions and demonstrations organized by the Agriculture Trainers of Trainers as well as the farm inputs support offered by THP-Ghana, has made it possible for farmers in the epicenters to adopt improved farming practices, resulting in a rise in farm output and incomes. Some of the farmers won awards during the Farmers’ Day celebrations.
