Farmers Expect Good Start to Africa’s Main Cocoa Crop Season



Favourable weather has brought good news to farmers in top cocoa growers Ivory Coast and Ghana with increased confidence of a good start to the main-crop harvest.

Downpours last week that followed previous showers point to good prospects for the first four months of the main harvest season that starts in October, said David Soffo, a farmer in Yakasi-Newtown in southwest Ghana. It’s a similar situation in Ivory Coast, though growers said more rain is needed to ensure an equally good latter part of the main crop that runs through March.
