Agriculture

The History of Agricultural in the Municipality

2010

Agriculture in General

The Agricultural sector is the single most important economic sector in the Ketu South municipality, employing over 18 percent of the labour force according to the 2010 population and housing census and also the 2010 Population and Housing Census reported a total of 8,353 constituting 21.4 percent of households are engaged in agriculture in Ketu South Municipality, as against 30,766 (78.6%) households not engaged in agriculture. The agricultural sector is divided into three sub-sectors: Crop, Livestock and Fisheries of which the Fisheries sub – sector have become the dominant.

Crops Sub-Sectors in the Municipality

Crops Sub-Sector

About 98 percent of the total farmlands in the Municipality are under subsistence food crops production involving maize, cassava and vegetables. The rest of the farmland is devoted for the cultivation of non-traditional cash crops mainly; mango and chili pepper which is for exportation.

Food Crop Production in the Municipality

Food Crop Production

The food crops grown extensively over the entire municipality are cassava and maize. The current average yield of maize is 1.2 tons/ha and that of cassava is 13.8 tons/ha. The average land holding is 0.4 for both crops. The small land holding is due to a high population pressure. The improvement in production of both crops can only come about by increasing yield per hectare through the adoption of good agricultural practices. At current yield and production levels, the Municipality is only capable of meeting 50% of the maize requirement and the difference are met from inflows from other districts and regions. However, the Municipality has about 60% surplus in cassava production which is processed into dough and “gari” for sale.
The major challenge to cassava and particularly maize production is crops failure resulting from over reliance on rainfall, low access to mechanized agriculture and credit to support the procurement of farm inputs.it.

Cash and Export Crops Productions

Cash and Export Crops Production

The cash and export crop in the municipality is currently mango. The mango production is just emerging and is on a very small scale with less than ten years in existence. The land and the climate of the Municipality are favourable to support investment in the mango cultivation. Currently, there are 70 hectares of land under mango production with average farm size of five hectares. One of the challenges is that expanding the mango production on commercial plantation extending over 40 hectares can only be possible at the expense of food crop production.
The municipality used to produce pepper under rain fed and irrigation for export and local markets. The municipality currently produces pepper under rain fed for internal market only. The municipality no longer produces pepper in commercial quantities under irrigation. This development has greatly affected the livelihood of urban gardeners whose second most important vegetable crop after onion was pepper which they produce for export market. Butternut squash is a new vegetable introduced into the Municipality in 2013 for export market. It is a promising crop for export market and can serve as a substitute for collapsed pepper industry in the municipality.
