At the Ghana Agriculture and Agro-Processing Awards (GAAPA) held on 11 August 2023 at the Accra Movenpick hotel, HJA Africa’s OFA (Organic Farming Aid) fertilizer won the award for Ghana-made Fertilizer Brand of the year.
This is another milestone on OFA’s journey to transform the productivity, profitability, product quality and sustainability of agriculture in Ghana and across Africa, by giving farmers amazing returns on investment, typically 30:1 (that is yield increases worth at least 30 times the cost of the OFA they use), that are also very affordable for all farmers. OFA also delivers huge environmental and climate change benefits for all of us. And in these challenging times, when many farmers cannot afford synthetic fertilizers or find their costs outweigh their benefits, it is wonderful news for Ghana that our 100% locally made product OFA is not just effective and affordable, but can already be produced in sufficient quantities to meet all our farmers’ needs, and to more than double Ghana’s total yield gains from fertilizer use.
HJA Africa are delighted by this award’s recognition of the progress OFA is making in helping Ghana’s farmers, and we believe the award will also help make many more farmers aware of OFA and the big benefits it can give them.
HJA Africa wish to sincerely thank our farmer customers, our over 100 input dealer partners, our key research partners including the Centre for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and the University of Ghana, our regulators the Environmental Protection Agency and the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, and many other partners including the Ghana Climate Innovation Centre, who all have helped make this achievement possible.
