Successful trials sees local firm begin exporting to Ghana

Levity CropScience has received its first order from Ghana, for its Tropical Albina product, which helps banana growers in the country produce greater yields, following a successful trial.

The West African nation of Ghana has 347,000 hectares of banana farms, producing 3.7 million tonnes of bananas a year (and the sector is rapidly expanding). However, it also suffers from Saharan winds that cause stress to crops such as bananas, leading to challenging conditions for growers.

In response, Levity is launching Tropical Albina, a product which helps the crop maintain growth yield and quality during stress periods and ensures that the plant can better resist attack by fungal diseases like Sigatoka.

In West Africa, the banana crops suffer from stress during the Harmattan season, where the weather systems from the Sahara bring dry winds that harm the crop. Tropical Albina performed well in trials there last year and now Levity has commenced shipping its product to banana farms in Ghana and other West African markets.

Levity products aid growers, in particular, Tropical Albina helps produce crops that are more resilient to stressful climates and disease, increasing yields.

David Marks, MD, Levity CropScience said: “We’re excited to be adding Ghana to our ever-growing list of export countries. Tropical Albina will give growers across Ghana the ability to produce greater banana yields that are resilient to disease and the harsh Saharan winds that sweep across the country.

“All of the products are developed by ourselves and engineered to get the maximum quality, life span and yield for users. Levity products are specially designed to help crops excel in dry and challenging climates.”
