Every year, Wynca Sunshine will donate agriculture products to the National and Local Farmers Day and also train farmers on how to use the agro- chemicals scientifically and efficiently to reduce cost of production.
Mr Kelvin Zhang, Sales Manager of Shansung Qiaochang Chemical Company Limited, described their encounter with the Ghanaian farmers and agro chemical dealers as fruitful.
