More About Us

The founders and managers of Farmers Hope responded to a number of issues when the company was created. A few of the most notable were:

 

  • Half the Ghanaian population depends on agriculture for its livelihood. Nevertheless, the cost of agricultural inputs is high, relative to farmer income.
  • When input costs are high this creates an entry barrier for more farmers to engage in commercial food production.
  • High input costs, in turn, result in higher costs for foodstuffs in the Ghanaian market.
  • Agricultural processes also generate a variety of waste which should be disposed responsibly

 

The factors noted here are just a few of the considerations that led to the creation of Farmers Hope.

Farmers Hope carried out extensive research on available materials that could be used to produce organic fertilizer in Ghana. The outcome was seven raw materials with high potency soil nutrients after decomposition in the soil. This research also revealed other elements which prevent soil diseases such as nematodes and deter harmful pests from affecting plants. Most importantly the research process led to the creation and launch of the company’s flagship product: Asaase Nofosuo, a pure organic fertilizer.
