KDC with a team of highly qualified and experienced Agronomists, Extentionists, Socio-Economists and Development specialists, therefore disseminate the available technologies through farmers’ fora, on-farm/adaptive trials/demonstrations in the area of newly developed crop varieties of maize, soyabean, rice, cowpea, millet, sorghum and groundnut.
We also carry out adaptive research to validate technologies, for example: the performance of newly formulated fertilizers on crops for some of the fertilizer distribution companies in Ghana.
KDC also builds the capacity of farmers through the training of trainers (ToT) on general Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) with respect to the effects of Climate Change in five modules:
1. Site Selection and Land Preparation
2. Planting and planting materials
3. Agronomic/cultural practices
4. Crop protection measures
5. Harvesting and postharvesting handling and Storage of farm produce
The company also conducts base line surveys and Project evaluations for organizations.
KDC is there not to compete with extension services/NARS but to complement and partner them to achieve the same goal for Ghana’s agricultural development.
