The Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) says its CocoaLink programme is now providing text messages to local farmers with access to cell phones.
CocoaLink, a unique farmer outreach programme with the World Cocoa
Foundation and The Hershey Company, expects to reach 100,000 Ghanaians in cocoa communities by 2014, according to statement issued in Accra on Friday.
“CocoaLink – Connecting Cocoa Communities” first announced in March 2011, is an innovative technology programme that provides Ghanaian cocoa farmers with critical agricultural and social information that benefits farm families and their communities and enables farmers to ask specific cocoa growing questions and share learning with other farmers.
