Knowledge plays a key role in the success of development policies. It is a key asset used by individuals, corporations, governments and international bodies in achieving both competitive and comparative advantage. The Planting for Food and Jobs agricultural policy was implemented to create job opportunities, promote food security, and socio-economic growth after failure of several agricultural policies in Ghana. A desk review reveals that through Knowledge Management, food is now available in export volumes and the country has begun exporting cereal grains and plantain to neighboring West African countries. The government of Ghana through the learning of outcomes have shown the commitment to address the few challenges of the programme which include the establishment of warehouses and buffer stock companies. It had been recommended that the policy implementation framework should be redesigned to promote active youth and women participation.
