Cameroon: Agriculture Ministry Launches Operation To Distribute Fertiliser To Cocoa-Coffee Producers

 The Cameroonian Ministry of Agriculture just launched in Kumba, in the South-Western region, the 2bd phase of the Project to support the use of fertiliser in the cocoa-coffee sector. 24 producer cooperatives and other GIC in this large cocoa production area received a cargo of 35 tons of chemical and organic fertiliser.

 

According to the Cameroonian government, this new phase of the above-mentioned project will enable the distribution to cocoa and coffee producers, of a total of 2,800 tons of fertiliser over a 6-year period. This is, as highlighted by the Ministry of Agriculture, a contribution of the State to achieving the production goals set in the stimulus plan for the cocoa-coffee sectors which implementation started this year.

This plan assumes a production of 600,000 tons of cocoa by 2020, against a current annual average production of 210,000 tons. It is also planned to produce 125,000 tons of Robusta coffee by the same dare, against 35,000 tons of Arabica coffee
