Poor Rains Impacting Tomato Varieties in Ghana

Tomato sellers in the country have abandoned tomatoes produced in large volumes across the Brong Ahafo Region in favour of Burkinabe and Ivorian tomatoes, B&FT has learned. The traders claim locally produced tomatoes are watery, too seedy and above all, have shorter lifespan, hence their preference for exotic varieties. Farmers in the region do not have access to the required varieties to cultivate, hence the deepening of their woes.
