Richard Kwasi Bannor*, Helena Oppong-Kyeremeh and Emmanuel Adjei-Addo



The study assessed the impact of Global Agri-Development Outgrower Scheme on the incomes of small scale rice producers in the Volta Region of Ghana. Four hundred and forty (440) producers were selected through the use of purposive and simple random sampling techniques. Propensity Score Matching and descriptive statistics were used for the analysis. The results showed that, small scale rice producers who were part of the outgrower scheme had an average increase of productivity from 0.641bags of rice/acre to 0.689bags/acre compared to those who did not benefit from the project. Furthermore small scale rice producers in the Volta Region who partook in outgrower scheme had increased average annual income between GH¢ 1810 and GH¢ 2608 than those who did not partake in outgrower scheme.
