Abstract (Swedish)
The cocoa is undoubtedly crucial to the economy of Ghana. But a total dependency on a single-crop export is foolhardiness. The evidences as to the paramount need for diversification of the Ghanaian agricultural sector are supported by scholars such as Barghouti, Garbus, Umali, Timmer and Valdes. Political instability, primitive land tenure system and blatant corruption in the society, hindered a better economic performance in the 1960's. Diversification in the author's submission, is the only road towards agricultural revolution, leading ultimately, to economic growth.
