Abstract

This study was commissioned for the project "Improved Processing of Shea Nuts in Northern Ghana". This project has carried out field tests on an improved method of shea processing in three villages in the semi-arid area of Northern Ghana. The three villages chosen for the field tests were Chansegwa and Kanfiehili in the Northern Region, where the project was collaborating with the NGO Tamale Archdiocese Agricultural Programme (TAAP) and Tabiase in the Upper West Region, with Technoserve as the collaborator. The project is funded from ODA's Crop Post Harvest Programme. This report presents the findings of the socio economist who visited Ghana in February and March 1997 to appraise the technology of the bridge press, and to describe the marketing systems for shea in Ghana.
