The Nigeria Cocoa Research Institute (KRIN) said that farmers from farms left production because of difficulties in finding a profitable market for their product.
CRIN director for expansion and economics, Dr. Oluoji Oduvol, spoke about this yesterday in an interview with the Daily Trust at the current 11th National Agricultural Exhibition.
Dr. Oduwole emphasized that, although coffee producers are engaged in production, market access has become a huge problem because there was only one buyer, and prices based on international standards were very discouraging.
Oduwole emphasized that the result was that many farmers had left production, noting that Plateau and Tarabá States lived in highland plantation homes, while rubber-producing areas such as Cross River State also produced coffee.
However, he said that with the improved market, many farmers who abandoned production are returning, adding that farmers who need improved seedlings can get them from the institute upon request.
He also said that the institute now encourages farmers to modernize production, as more processors entered the arena of the value chain.
Speaking about cocoa, Dr. Oduwole said that the institute improved cocoa saplings, which began to produce after two years, saying that with improved saplings, the farmer can get up to two tons per hectare compared to the 300 kg they received.
