Agriculture Economy


Ghana’s agriculture economy contributes considerably to growth, accounting for around 19% of the country’s GDP and employing approximately 44% of the workforce. Agriculture data indicate that agricultural growth in Ghana has slowed since the country’s oil discoveries. The agriculture sector’s GDP share has declined from approximately 31% in 2000 to around 18% in 2019, while the oil and gas sector’s proportion has climbed from zero to over 9% during the same period. Through programs and restrictions that continue to hinder expansion, the government has dominated the industry. The YAFO Institute conducts free enterprise studies to promote more freedom for stakeholders and farmers.
