While some have applauded the university for introducing such a programme others feel there is not a skill gap in the sector hence the course is not so vital.
Great initiative.There's a market gap being addresed.That's a UniversityA+ agenda.
If I may ask, is this a skill gap in the job market here in Ghana?

Unfortunately, too little is done in the Agricultural (Goods).A low-tech country busily teaching and training (service sector) will have food inflation going high..
