RMG Concept Ltd invests $1.75m in the Babator Farming Company Ltd

19 June 2017

BFC is a 356 ha (net) irrigated farming company established by AgDevCo Ghana Ltd (“AgDevCo”) as the first phase of the Babator Irrigated Farming concession – which is expected to be the largest block of irrigated land in Northern Ghana (5,000 ha).

AgDevCo’s early work at BFC has demonstrated the commercial viability of the project and its establishment has already delivered development benefits to the area: 85 permanent jobs have been created in a rural environment where little formal employment exists. Farming operations started in early 2017 and by the end of the year, the equivalent of 2,000 MT of cereals (maize, sorghum, grain and seed) and 4,000 MT of onions will have been produced for the local market, improving food security.
