Ghana: Planting Seeds

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Ghana’s seed industry is in its infancy. Corn and rice form about 70 percent of the sales of certified seed in Ghana. Seed varieties of corn and rice are imported to meet growing demand. An import permit is required to import certified corn, rice and soybeans seeds as indicated in the Ghana seed law Part II (Seeds) of ‘Plants and Fertilizer Act, 2010 (Act 803). Even so, the Government of Ghana (GOG) continues to implement a non-transparent import permit issuance regime that limits imported products.
