New Investigative Strategy to Improve Drip Irrigation for Ghanaian tomato cultivation

Project Details


Tomato is the main agricultural products of Ghana and Ghana's main cash crop. The production of tomato is extremely vital not only for Ghanaian economy but also for providing millions of livelihoods. Despite its importance, the production of tomato in Ghana now faces an immense challenge, drought due to climate change, that do not only cause cocoa yield reduction terribly, but also raises concerns about sustainability of the crop, as tomato is intolerant to drought. To address this serious challenge, in April 2022, the Government of Ghana signed an Agriculture Water Management Project valued at €44.7 million, with financial support from EU and France. This project will propose an improved drip irrigation scheme to address the challenge, based on CFD & Machine learning.
