As a part of your Cocoa Care program, Kusnadi (and Wahyuni) recieve support from a Cocoa Care for the duration of your program. In late March 2014, Cocoa Care Darwis dropped in to Kusnadi's house and we were pleased to see Kusnadi was out in the farm taking care of his new baby cocoa trees.
The trees are coming along very well and starting to establish a good root system allowing the leaves to grow and subsequently will not require shade for much longer. Once the shade comes off the trees will start to grow pretty quickly and experience several growth spurts.
Kusnadi certainly looks quite pleased at the progress of his trees. We look forward to bringing you more updates on these new trees soon.
