    This data was captured during the GPS mapping exercise of the Agricultural Development and Value Chain Enhancement (ADVANCE) Program is a USAID funded program being implemented by a consortium of local and international partners led by ACDI/VOCA for focused commodities.
    It captures details of cereal farms (maize, rice and soya beans) on the ADVANCE program from the Upper East, Upper West and Northern regions of Ghana.


    Data was captured for purposes of creating a GIS database to be used for the monitoring and evaluation of farms benefitting from the ADVANCE Program. All attributes therefore were collected for such intent. Upon completion of the program, the ADVANCE office deems it relevant to make such data available for all other agric related purposes for which it can be of relevance.
