Zoomlion Ghana Limited (ZGL) has been guaranteed the government's support in its ambition to create high-quality organic fertilizer on a big scale by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA).

Dr. Akoto offered the promise while touring the Accra Compost and Recycling Plant (ACARP), a Zoomlion facility in Adjen Kotoku, Greater Accra Region on 01 June 2022

 

He was accompanied by some senior ministry officials.

 

The minister and his crew were given a tour of ACARP's activities in general, as well as its organic fertilizer production in particular.

Zoomlion, with its recycling and compost factories strewn over the country, could produce organic fertilizer on a vast scale to feed "our farmers," according to Dr. Akoto.

"I am convinced Zoomlion, with this capacity, will be able to help bridge the fertilizer deficit in the country," the minister stated of ACARP's organic fertilizer production method.

"As the country's biggest producer of organic fertilizer, Zoomlion has a huge potential to manufacture high-quality organic fertilizer to meet Ghana's fertilizer shortfall," he added.

He claimed that a global shortage of inorganic fertilizer as a result of the COVID-19 and the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

"We are determined to ensure that our farmers obtain all the supplies that they need so that they are not affected by the global problem of inorganic fertilizer shortage," Dr. Akoto said.

He claimed that if the government could develop organic fertilizer for farmers, it would be able to make big gains on the international market.

"The product of organic fertilizer application is organic food, which has a tremendous premium on the worldwide market, so we can earn a lot of profits as a country if we can improve our organic fertilizer," he said.

Following his meeting with 18 prominent organic fertilizer providers, Dr. Akoto revealed that they indicated that they could supply more than they had been assigned.

He stated that the ministry would set a flexible quota for organic fertilizer producers to satisfy to bridge the fertilizer deficit produced by disrupted supply systems.

"In the instance of Zoomlion, we began with roughly 2,000 metric tonnes in 2017 and have since increased to 7,500." They claim to have 150,000 metric tonnes of capacity by the end of the year. We'll put them to the test by imposing that quota," he said.

Joseph Siaw Agyepong, the Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies, announced that his 20 integrated recycling and compost plants (IRECoPs) will create 150,000 metric tonnes of compost yearly by the end of the year.

 

He claimed that a global shortage of inorganic fertilizer as a result of the COVID-19 and the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

"We've also set aside some monies for research to ensure that the quality of our compost is unaffected," he added.

While praising the minister for his visit, Mr. Agyepong called for more of the same.

He stated that the 16 IRECoPs currently under construction across the country would be completed by the end of the year.
