Cocoa Plantation A To Z: The Game Changer And Money Spinner By Organicfoods by organicfoods(m): 9:23am On Mar 14, 2017
I will be sharing with you my biggest farm exploit in Cocoa cultivation...It promises to be a big eye opener. watch out for this thread.

Cocoa
Cocoa is a cash crop and has played an important, vibrant role in rural economies worldwide. It is a crop that enjoys consistent global demand. It provides families with income and raising the standard of living in thousands of communities where it is grown and harvested. Cocoa is the second largest foreign exchange earner after crude oil. The global market for cocoa is very huge, growing at an average of 3% per annum. Nigeria’s cocoa export has equally grown over the years by an average of 40% annually and a cumulative of 280%. Nigeria is the world’s 4th largest producer and exporter of cocoa. Paradoxically, over 90% of the cocoa produced is exported. The target markets for cocoa are food and beverage companies, chocolate companies, soap making, companies both local and international. The selling price of cocoa beans as at today varies between 2195USD- 3130USD per ton and with the newly improved variety (hybrid) with the following characteristics:

a. Produces at least 2 tonnes per hectare, there are two harvesting season in a year heavy and light, you can harvest for 30 to 50 years.
b. Start producing in 2years
Shade Crop Plantain is a shade crop for cocoa. It protect cocoa from harsh weather condition as it develop to full maturity. If you are cultivating or planning to cultivate plantain without planting cocoa, then you are wasting a lot of resources, because investment/expenses on the establishment will be realized from the shade crop (plantain) as the consumption and exportation has risen tremendously in Nigeria in recent years and cocoa will later be an additional gain.

I think that the cocoa farmers should form a lobby group to make our senators and representatives pass a bill to reduce importation of processed cocoa products in order to promote local processing and greater farm-gate prices.

If u get it cheaper, it's most likely not d 18months hybrid.

However, we can work something out if you buy volume.

Remember,

Standard spacing for cocoa & plantain is 3mx3m or 10ftx10ft.

With ds spacing,

1acre will take 440suckers & 440 cocoa

1hectare will take 1100 suckers & 1100 cocoa at d same time.

God bless our hustles.

Yes, you need to irrigate during this dry season. It still requires good agricultural practice to achieve the 18 months flowering stage. Call/whatsapp 08160728034 for a complete guide.
