    Welcome, Fati.

    I am glad about your interest.

    Just for clarification. Are you saying you would like to do mixed cropping with ginger and other crops?

    Ok, great.

    So, let’s first talk about preparation so far with you and when you would like to start.

    Anyway, ginger is an annual crop. It takes between 6 to 8months to mature.

    It may cost you approximately GHC9000 to cultivate an acre. This can be reduced by about 30% depending on the technology adopted and management.

      I notice you wanted to start in September.

      I wouldn’t advice that unless you can irrigate it for the whole of the dry period.

      The practice of no-till will help reduce the cost of production.

      This will eliminate the cost of ploughing and reduce the cost of weed control.
