dc.description.abstract The article reviews research findings where farmers expressed needs for various support services including credit/finance, information on markets, prices and weather, input supply services and keeping of farm records. In Ghana, the government-funded agricultural extension system limits activities to technology transfer and education through training, demonstrations and visits. Other services such as inputs and machinery services are provided by the private sector. Based on the gaps between public and private inputs, an Integrated Business Services Delivery Model is proposed, that is national in character with a three-tier structure consisting of a Master Platform, Digital Solution Providers (DSPs) and Agribusiness Service Providers. en
