Cocoa Farms

The farmers through the various cocoa associations across the country expressed their concerns about the hardship they facing in producing the cocoa beans.

According to the farmers, inputs such as fertilizer have been a great challenge this year and that getting fertilizer from other suppliers at high cost prices has positioned most farmers in debts.

The farmers claim they have no option than to sell their cocoa beans to foreign companies or abandon their farms completely if government fails to increase the price per bag of cocoa.
