Ghana: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   GH2022-0006

Forecasts of below average rainfall and extended dry spells in most parts of the country by the Ghana Meteorological Agency, looming shortage and soaring global prices of fertilizer, and a further cutback on fertilizer subsidy rate are set to erode the grain production gains of GOG’s Planting for Food and Jobs program. Also, a weakened domestic currency, sharp increases in global prices of wheat, and high inflation are likely to induce a change in the consumption patterns of lower-income earners. Wheat consumption will drop slightly, rice and corn consumption as well, mostly driven by higher prices.
