Nsawam (E/R), Sept. 19, GNA – Cocoa farmers in
the country have been urged to embrace the mass cocoa spraying exercise
introduced by government.

In an exclusive interview shortly after a
farmers’ meeting at Nsawam in the Eastern Region on Wednesday, Nana Kumi
Abiesi, Nsawam – Adoagyiri Municipal 
Chief Farmer, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that embracing the mass
cocoa spraying exercise, would help farmers to increase the crop yield.

He explained that the exercise was part of a
high-tech cocoa production method and said the introduction of the high-tech
programme was a testimony of government’s determination to help improve the
cocoa industry.

According to him, when farmers embrace the
programme, it would help increase the national cocoa output from the present
tonnage, in order to reduce poverty among the farmers.

He said COCOBOD was increasing the spraying
machines in the various cocoa growing areas to enable the spraying gangs reach
every farm, with a view to combat the capsid virus.
