General Secretary of the Ghana Agricultural Workers' Union (GAWU), Edward Kareweh, has disclosed that some unapproved chemicals in the agricultural business are very rampant in the country. According to him, these chemicals are very harmful to human lives and other living things and can affect the crops around the area such chemicals are used on. Kareweh noted: "There are many chemicals that have not been approved and get they are within the system. There is also another chemical known as the 'condemn' which is sprayed on weeds to kill them and they also have effects on other living organisms. As to what will happen to the crop thereafter these chemicals have been sprayed and killed the weeds is a major concern to us.
