Kusnadi's On Farm Training
During January 2014, Kusnadi received his on farm training conducted by Cocoa Carer's Darwis and Aris.
On farm training assesses the areas that most need improving on the individual farm and predominately focuses on the importance of pruning, farm sanitation (cleaning up the farm floor), pest & disease management and soil care.
Farmer training is essential for cocoa farmers, who historically have little to no understanding of good agricultural practices which is required to have healthy, productive and sustainable cocoa farms.
In addition to his training, Aris and Darwis gave Kusnadi a helping hand to clean up his farm and prune the cocoa trees getting ready to fertilize ahead of the main crop in May/June.
