Since the dismal performance of large scale irrigation projects set up in northern Ghana during the 1970s and 1980s, attempts at increasing agricultural production and improving the living conditions of the region's inhabitants have focused on supporting smallholder farmers in the area. Support for smallholder farming has concentrated mainly on expanding extension services and providing essential agricultural inputs on deferred payment basis. This study assesses the impact of the Agricultural Extension Services (AES), in particular, its credit schemes among smallholders in the Kassena-Nankani district. The problems associated with the introduction of the soya bean crop to farmers in Kajelo through the provision of inputs on credit basis and the consequent rising indebtedness of smallholders to the AES are examined.
