Ghana targets 1.2 million tonnes of cocoa this year

Ghana will hit the target of 1.2 million metric tonnes of cocoa beans by the end of the 2014/15 cocoa season.
This was revealed by the Suhum District Cocoa Officer of the Health and Extension Division of COCOBOD, Michael Gyasi, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at his office in Suhum in the Eastern Region.
He explained that records available indicate that the nation’s production is below one million metric tonnes, and it is expected that by the end of the lean season, Ghana can achieve her aim.
According to him, government is working hard to achieve the set target for Ghana and to sustain it, to ensure that the country becomes the world leader in cocoa production by next year.
He said farmers’ rallies were part of the Health and Extension Division of COCOBOD efforts to offer a platform to interact, socialize and educate farmers on good farming practices.
