    • Shade trees include coconut and gliricidia.

    Farm Issues

    • Cocoa pod borer and black pod are evident in all locations.
    • Farm practices, GAP, require improvement. 
    • More remote locations require significant cocoa tree rehabilitation and soil remediation.
    • General level of training remains low.
    • There are approximately 57 dead cocoa trees that require replacing.

      Farm Productivity

      • Total harvest per year = +/- 300 kg from the 0.5 hectare farm (est. 600kg/ha).

        Farm History

        • Anis planted cocoa on family land 12 years ago (+/- 2001) and bought this smaller farm himself and side grafted the cocoa trees four years ago.
        • Anis has the potential to be a successful cocoa farmer but requires training and some initial support to get him going.
