Blurb/Shorttext:
Food security projects are increasing in many developing countries including Ghana.This important book critically reflects on the introductory process of plantain multiplication technology as a food security strategy for improving the production of staple crops. It provides an understanding to the suitability of the technology to the socio-economic conditions of the farmers. It employed qualitative case study design and data collection instruments such as participant observations, focus group discussion. The introductory process of plantain multiplication technology in this book reflects more on consultation than collaboration since farmers and other actors were involved in problem identification, staple crop selection but not in the planning of the activities as well as the methods used in carrying out those activities. In order to provide a better understanding of plantain production, this book reveals the following: plantain–cocoa interaction as a significant cropping system and ‘galamsey’ as an income generating activity. This book is vital for researchers, extension or communication workers, policy makers and project implementers.
