Fumesua (Ash), Sept. 16, GNA – Seed companies
have called for the provision of insecticides for seed treatment that could
guarantee long shelve lives of seeds produced in the country.

According to the seed companies, the current
insecticides for treatment of seeds on the market last for 90 days forcing the
companies to retreat their seeds several times.     

The situation, the companies claim is creating
unhealthy relationship between them and other players in the seed value chain
who are accusing them of poor treatment of their seeds especially when the
seeds had to stay with the clients for over 90 days.

This came up for discussion at the second Annual
General Meeting (AGM) of the National Seed Trade   Association of Ghana (NASTAG) at Fumesua in
the Ashanti Region.

Addressing the AGM, the National President of
NASTAG, Mr Thomas Havor called for unity among members of the association, and
urged them to work together and stay together.

He reminded them that their success depends on
staying and working together and that the future of the country depends on
them.
