Management of GIZ on Thursday presented 25 pieces of mini projectors to COCOBOD under the Cocoa Health and Extension Division to educate farmers on modern farming practices.
The gesture was also to enhance farm productivity and improve upon the livelihoods of farmers in the country.
Mrs Charlotte Chirimuuta, the Technical Advisor, GIZ, said the initiative was part of their sustainability measures to develop digital extension material to strengthen the capacities of partner organisations in the field of agriculture.
This, she explained, would make agriculture more attractive to the youth.
She said digital extension materials were cost effective ways of bringing extension to farmers because it was far reaching and had a wide outreach to farmers.
Mrs Chirimuuta said their outfit hoped to see that the farmers have developed and reach higher yields in their farming practices.
She said digital innovation were one of the things that attracted the youth to venture into farming, hence the need to sustain the initiative to improve quality service.
Nana Oduro-Owusu, the Deputy Chief Executive in charge of Operations, COCOBOD commended GIZ for the items, saying the gesture would enable COCOBOD incorporate teaching of ICT to cocoa farmers.
He pledged COCOBOD’s commitment to take good care of the items in improving results and that they would rely on them for technical support in bringing the concept of extension education in farming.
