Yara Ghana Ltd., a leading fertilizer supplier in Ghana, has announced the availability of its fertilizers on the open market only for the fertilizer application season which has just commenced.

This is in line with the company’s commitment to consistently deliver products in a timely manner to farmers in all the regions of Ghana.

Yara’s Managing Director Jorgen C Arentz Rostrup, maintained that the company remains highly committed to assigning its agronomists to work closely with farmers to ensure high yield and quality.

“We are pleased to keep on offering farmers our products as the main fertilizer application season begins. Our products are now available in the open market only and just as we have done in the previous years, we will support farmers attain good yields through our technical support systems and our fertilizer application training programs that we offer nationwide.”

Rostrup added, “Our commitment to the farmers is a priority for everyone at Yara, and we will maintain our extensive import program for 2015, making sure the farmer has access to quality fertilizers.”

In 2014 Yara supplied more than half of the fertilizer consumption in Ghana through open market channels. It has however announced that its products will not be part of the subsidy program for 2015.

“Yara Ghana will continue promoting sustainable agricultural productivity and the welfare of the Ghanaian farmer through the supply of the most efficient range of fertilizers in the industry, with solutions to meet the specific needs of all crops, adding value to the farmers’ activities, throughout practices and yields.”
