Cocoa Farmers

Cocoa farmers in the country have been urged to embrace the mass cocoa spraying exercise introduced by government.

In an exclusive interview shortly after a farmers’ meeting at Nsawam in the Eastern Region, Nana Kumi Abiesi, Nsawam – Adoagyiri Municipal Chief Farmer, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that embracing the mass cocoa spraying exercise, would help farmers to increase the crop yield.

He explained that the exercise was part of a high-tech cocoa production method and said the introduction of the high-tech programme was a testimony of government’s determination to help improve the cocoa industry.

According to him, when farmers embrace the programme, would help increase the national cocoa output from the present tonnage, in order to reduce poverty among the farmers.

He said COCOBOD was increasing the spraying machines in the various cocoa growing areas to enable the spraying gangs reach every farm, with a view to combating the capsid virus.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
