Summary of a study by the GhanaVeg Program and Wageningen UF that describes the current export value chain and identifies viable business opportunities to sustain and scale up Ghana’s vegetable export sector. The export vegetable sector in Ghana is going through difficult times. Structural challenges coupled with doubtful phytosanitary status of exported vegetables threaten the viability of the sector in years to come. However, turning current vegetable production into a more commercial, market-driven export production may re-invigorate and serve as an impulse for the sector.
Thaumatotibia leucotreta is commonly called False Codling Moth (FCM). This is a major crop pest. Its caterpillars (larvae) attack many horticultural crops in Africa, especially those with fruit, pods and berries. These include beans, grapes, citrus, pepper, mango, avocado, guava, pomegranate, pineapple, ornamental plants, cotton, tea and a wide range of wild plants. This leaflet is designed to help people working in packhouses to tackle the problem of FCM.
