banks for large-scale agricultural investments in Ghana was carried out by the former Executive Secretary of the Land Commission, Wordsworth Odame Larbi.
The availability of investible agricultural land — whether by location, tenure security, land rights, ownership, infrastructure or size — is critical to transforming agriculture from low productivity subsistence-based to high productivity mechanised modern agriculture. Ghana’s vision for modernising agriculture requires a combination of both mechanised agriculture based on large investments in combination with smallholder farming. The needed security of land tenure for land acquired for agriculture therefore cannot be over-emphasized. It is precisely for the aforementioned reasons that the Ghana Commercial Agriculture Project (GCAP) commissioned a study on the creation of land banks in Ghana to facilitate the acquisition of land for commercial agricultural investment.
