Hot Audio: Farmers name beans variety after John Mahama

In 2013, an improved variety of cowpea popularly called John Mahama beans was introduced at Atebubu Amantin in the Brong Ahafo Region.

It’s unclear the real name of the variety but it’s become so popular that more than 50 per cent of farmers in a local community called Lailai grows it now.

Joseph Opoku Gakpo of Joy News’ Agric, Environment and Technology Desk went to explore why this name.
