Socio-Economic Programme

The programme undertook four studies on cost and profitability analyses of cocoyam, cassava, cassava-plantain inter-crop and yam.
(i)    Cost of production and profitability analysis of cocoyam. 
Cocoyam production is profitable although farmer’s yields are low and use only indigenous practices.

(ii)    Cost of production and profitability analysis of cassava and plantain inter-crop in parts of the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Cassava and plantain farming is profitable. However, there is need to develop and extend improved practices.

(iii)    Cost of production and return analysis of cassava.
Cassava production is profitable but labour-saving technologies are urgently needed.

(iv)    Cost of production and profitability analysis of yam in the transition and forest agro-ecological zones of Ghana.
Benefit:Cost ratios for yam production ranged from 2-4 therefore making yam production profitable. Yam setts are very expensive and there is need to develop and extend improved propagation methods such as the minisett technology to farmers.
