Agri-Impact Jobs


AGRI-IMPACT in its line of duty providing advisory services to private sector has noted the gap in skills set between graduates and expectations of private sector entrepreneurs. Indeed, even though graduates face significant employment challenges, there are also good employment opportunities in the private sector for which the skills gap has become a disincentive for hiring. The teeming unemployed youth if properly oriented with tools and skills will adequately prepare them for future opportunities.

Agri-Impact acknowledges that the youth serve as a great resource for the private sector and national socio-economic development. The need for a structured program involving public-private partnerships to bridge the knowledge and skills gap cannot be overemphasized.It is against this backdrop that Agri-Impact Consult (AIC) in Partnership with the National Service Secretariat (NSS) is rolling out a graduate entrepreneurship program, dubbed “NSS Graduate Skills Enhancement and Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Project”

This historic partnership seeks to establish a working relationship aimed at providing unparalleled technical opportunities to graduates, youth, and women to build their technical, managerial, and vocational capacities to fit into the job market and be better equipped to take advantage of business opportunities in the agribusiness and SME landscape.

With the support of Ghana EXIM Bank, AIC has championed the upscaling of Greenhouse Technology in Ghana under the Youth in Greenhouse Enterprise Project which has seen the establishment of 200 (640sqm each) Greenhouses across the country; effectively 13 hectares of vegetable production under intensive cultivation. This has provided jobs to over 800 Ghanaian youth. Additionally, AIC has partnered Delphy and other Dutch companies to install a 5,000sqm semi-automated greenhouse for production, research, and training purposes. Agri-Impact has been involved in the agribusiness and industrialization agenda by supporting the Ghana Eximbank and providing monitoring and business advisory services to over 70 firms financed by the Bank under the 1D1F program. AIC, with the support of AGRA, has also implemented the Small Holder Inclusive Productivity and Market Access (SIPMA) project which sought to enhance competitiveness in the maize and soy value chains and has impacted ted over 100,000 smallholders in the Bono and Northern regions of Ghana.

AIC swooped six awards at the recently held Agribusiness Excellence and Leadership Awards organized by the Ghana Chamber of Agribusiness and notable amongst them was the Agribusiness Project Management and consulting firm of the year awards.

Demand for high starch yielding cassava roots for industrial processing is projected to increase due to private sector investments and the 1D1F policy. It is critical for farmers to increase productivity from 10MT -12MT per acre to 20-24MT to industrial demand. It against this background that AIC under the Ghana Cassava Industrialization Partnership Project (GCIPP) funded by AGRA organized capacity development workshops.
The event targeted more than 200 community-based advisors (CBAs) and about 30 agriculture extension officers from the Department of Agriculture in five districts, Bono region.

The workshops covered the following;

1. Adoption of improved cassava varieties.

Compared to the conventional varieties, improved cassava varieties are disease and pest resistant, as well as high yielding with over 20% starch content. These qualities make it suitable for starch, HQCF, and ethanol production.

2. Improved production practices

Effective land preparation, planting, spacing, and planned cultivation to meet industrial requirements and demand.

3. Effective Crop Protection

Farmers were advised to control weeds at the early stages of planting to prevent the competition of weeds and plants for nutrients which will lead to optimal yield

Again they were admonished to apply the right weedicides, the right quantities, and at the right time of the planting season.

4. Market

The Workshops also enlightened the CBAs to understand that the cassava they produce should be market-driven, meeting buyer specifications and requirements. This will boost demand for their cassava produce.

Farmers are expected to adopt the new cassava varieties which have the potential to increase their yields and improve their livelihoods.

In all, about 20,000 farmers are expected to receive this training from the Community Based Advisors (CBAs) with technical support from Agricultural Departments in Jaman North, Tain, Sunyani -West, Dormaa Municipal, and Tano-North districts of the Bono region




Today, the Chief of Staff from the Office of the Okyehene led a delegation to visit the Youth in Greenhouse Enterprise Project (YuGEP)  production site at Kyebi to assist 20 beneficiaries to undertake their first harvest of 600kg of cucumbers, bell peppers, and tomatoes produced from five (5) greenhouses out of the ten (10) already installed at Asikam, near Kyebi. 

The YuGEP project is funded by the Ghana EXIM Bank and implemented by Agri-Impact Consult as part of both the Government of Ghana ‘Planting for Food and Job’ and 1D1F programs. The YuGEP project consists of 100 top vent greenhouses of 6,440 sqm each installed in six regions of Ghana including Greater Accra, Ashanti, Eastern, Central, Volta, and Western. Preparatory work for the second phase of another 100 greenhouses has commenced and installation across different parts of the country would commence in January 2021.


Overall, the 200 tunnels are expected to produce 32 hectares of all-year-round vegetable production in Ghana. These pilots pave way for more intensive vegetable cultivation in Ghana with increasing investment in greenhouse and other intensive cultivation to reduce the dependency on vegetable imports, create opportunity for import substitution and more importantly attract more young people into agriculture and agribusiness to create income and job.

The Kyebi Cluster site has ten tunnels managed by twenty beneficiaries. The vegetables are cultivated by the beneficiaries with technical support from Agri-Impact Consult. Market access and marketing facilitation is provided by FreshLogistics; an agro produce marketing company.

The delegation led by Nana Twumasi was delighted at the progress made and commended both the beneficiaries and the Agri-Impact team for successes achieved, the update of technology and the improvement of the working conditions of the 20 youth beneficiaries who were trained at Agri-Impact Entrepreneurship and Technology Institute at Berekusu near Aburi. The Kyebi site is expected to produce over 200 tonnes of vegetables in the next 3 years. The site has created over 20 direct jobs and more than 30 indirect jobs already



On 1st August 2020, His Majesty the Asantehene commissioned the 10 Greenhouse clusters at the KNUST campus. His Majesty was accompanied by the New Vice-Chancellor Prof Dickson.
Among the 10 tunnels was a sweet pepper transplanted on the same day. That Greenhouse structure belongs to Miss Adrena Kyeremanteng, a graduate of KNUST who is among the 100 young entrepreneurs selected to benefit from the initiative financed by Ghana Eximbank. The beneficiaries through the technical support of Agri-Impact have nurtured their Greenhouses and their Vegetables are ready for the first harvest. They are cultivating different crops and are in different stages of maturity at the KNUST cluster.


Earlier yesterday, Mr. Dan Fahene Acquaye (CEO) of Agri-Impact Consult and Mr. Abraham Kofi Sarfo CEO and chief advisor at ABSL joined the YUGEP-KNUST production team to participate in their first harvest. The yields from the first harvest were beyond the projected yield. They appeared impressed with the progress made so far.


Commending the beneficiaries for adhering and complying to the greenhouse production protocols, the Executive director of AIC said “I am very excited with the amazing results, We envisage that with savings and reinvestment, You ( beneficiaries) would grow to have more spinoff businesses along the value chain to employ more young people.

He also touted the project’s use of young talent; “It’s very encouraging for the future of Agribusiness in Ghana, he said
He was optimistic that the YUGEP initiative would go a long way to resolve the issue of persistent importation of vegetables into the country.
Overall the Ghana EXIM BANK funded Youth in greenhouse Enterprise project has created about 100 enterprises for graduates on their journey to self-employment. Already the beneficiaries of the project have staff on their payroll to support them in their production activities.
This is sustainable employment. Thank you Ghana EXIMBANK for your leadership and strategic intervention in supporting the youth
