Rains have wiped away the Ansonama fields, which have a capacity of around 90,000 and provide a source of daily income for approximately 400 people in and around the community.

Keeping up with the poultry industry in Ghana has proven to be a difficult undertaking for poultry producers. Given the continuous increases in the expense of feeding the poultry birds. Maize prices, as well as those of soybeans, wheat, and concentrates, have caused major problems for Ghanaian poultry farmers. The management of Ansonama Farms now has to deal with more than simply the soaring price of poultry feed in Ghana as a result of the floods.
