The District Manager of Cocoa Merchant Company, a licensed cocoa buying company in the Central Region, has called on farmers to embrace the mass cocoa spraying exercise introduced by the government.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) after a farmers’ meeting at Agona Duakwa in the Central Region, Mr Randy Nkrumah said embracing the mass cocoa spraying exercise, would help farmers to increase their crop yields.

He said the exercise was part of a high-tech cocoa production method.

Mr Nkrumah said the introduction of the high-tech programme was a testimony of government’s determination to help improve the cocoa industry, in order to reduce poverty among the farmers.

He expressed concern that some cocoa farmers failed to allow their farms to be sprayed, although their cocoa farms were infested with the capsid virus that destroys cocoa beans.
