President John Mahama on Thursday spent the 2014 World Food Day with the farming community of Branam in the Brong Ahafo Region where the United Conglomerate Farms is cultivating a 623 acre maize farm.
The target, according to the Farm Managers, is to cultivate 1, 000 acres and they are hoping that with the support of the chiefs and people, they will be able to cultivate other crops on the 10,000 acres released by the chiefs to the company.
Adjacent to this farm, the National Service Scheme also has a 100-acre farm on the previous State Farms Land.
President Mahama, a son of a rice farmer and a farmer himself, stunned everybody when he went on a tour of the farm driving a farm tractor and explaining the processes to the audience.
