12:19:00 AM


Dizengoff Ghana, has launched the introduction of CASE-IH TRACTORS to the Ghanaian market, at the recently held National Farmers Day Exhibition in Kumasi.

The Cash-Ih-Tractors, which are perfect for both smallholders and commercial farmers or as utility tractors on any farming and/or hauling business; has been introduced to help farmers in the Planting for Food and Jobs Policy of the Government of Ghana.

Launching the multi-purpose CASE IH Tractors in the Ashanti Regional capital, the Minister of State in charge of Food and Agriculture, Dr. Nurah Gyeile, stated that durable tractors with fine after sales services were crucial in the agricultural development in the country.

He explained that, if after the supply of quality and adequate seeds and fertilizers the farmer is unable to plough the land on time, all these seeds and fertilizer will come to nothing.

Halting the breaking of the backs of the ordinary farmer through the use of hoe and cutlass by resorting to mechanizations is at the heart of the President and therefore any durable tractor that would serve the test of time would be welcome.

He told Dizengoff Ghana that governments doors were open and was looking for stronger tractors that could be suitable for the Ghanaian terrain and if you bring fine tractors, we will be fine partners,
We in Ghana have always been excited at any opportunity to mechanise our farms, Dr Gyeile said and traced the mechanization process to the 1960s which he noted had seen the importation of several mix of tractors.

He said some of the tractors were in fine shape and survived with time but others have faded out and cited the example during the Kufuor Administration when the country imported over 3,000 tractors of different mix but most of them were out of use.

Dr Gyeile stated that majority of these tractors had to be abandoned due to the non existence of after sales service and lack of spare but some of them were simply not fine for the terrain in Ghana.

He said some tractors that were brought in recently started giving problems and realising this, the government had raised issues and the manufactures had given assurance that they would fix them.

Dr Gyeile explained that farmers at Planting for Food and Jobs forum organised by the ADB Bank were looking for mechanization services and after sales services.

He expressed delight that tractors being unveiled in Ghana by Dizengoff would be durable and that they make fine their promise to provide adequate spare parts and after sales service.

The General Manager of Dizengoff, Agric Division, Mr Ahmed Hashemi, assured the government and farmers that, the tractors have been made to withstand the vagaries of the Ghanaian weather conditions, last longer and give the farmer value for money.

He said the company had put in place an excellent After Sales Services and the provision of adequate Spare Parts will not be a problem.
