Starting a Cocoa Farm

The crop cocoa is produced tropical areas that have been far and wide acknowledged as the beverage pick even prior to the discovery of coffee and tea. The cocoa being an essential requisite in confectionary trade is a good item to grow business with.

These are some of the easy to follow steps to start on with your cocoa farm industry.

The commercial agriculture of cocoa is a trade that is now being widely considered due to the magnitude of this crop’s produce to the confectionary industry as well as to other food areas. Globally, it is an item that is largely consumed. This is the prime reason that the business for cocoa farming is being boosted up.

Starting a Cocoa Farm

In starting a cocoa plantation, an assortment of factors have to be considered such as the climate of the locality, average rainfall per millimeter, temperature, humidity, and type of soil and the proper selection of planting material. Potting mixture and type of sowing have to be well thought-out as well. Plus the propagation and the cocoa plant’s after care.

Rainfall could actually be supplemented with modern irrigation in cases of parched months. However, it is of vital necessity that rain must be present at one thousand two hundred and fifty to three thousand millimeters per annum. The dried up period must not be further than three months. The favorable temperature could vary between thirty to thirty two degrees Celsius. Humidity has to be taken in consideration too due to the fact that over humidified areas may help the spread of fungal diseases that may alter the growth of the cocoa crop and the storage and drying of it could be at risked also. Cocoa trees are further susceptible than other tropical crops to moisture stress. A variety of soil types could be favorable to the cocoa plant. The soil ought to be such as allowing uncomplicated access of roots able of retaining dampness during summers. Clay loams and sandy loams are also appropriate.

In the assortment of the proper planting material, cocoa can be propagated all the way through seeds or by vegetative manner. Meant for raising seedlings, seeds of grown-up pods are taken from lofty yielding mother plants which should generate one hundred pods per year. Subsequent to seven days of harvest, naturally, the seeds lose its viability. Proper storage is the key to avoid this from happening. The potting mixture and type of sowing must consist of farm yard manure, sand and soil in identical magnitude to propagate the cocoa seedlings. Remember that the best time to sow seeds in the nursery is during the month of December to January. On the other hand, vegetative breeding is a hefty scale of production of superior planting material in the course of budding and grafting.

  • Jose Rosales said on April 1, 2012
    Interested in doing a joint venture in Honduras to start a cocoa farm. Have ideal land, logistics and installations on site and need financing on long term basis and appropriate terms for these kind of venture. Ideal situation would be to plant our farm and then reach agreement with small farmers to make them plant and buy their production in order to reach a large volume of production and create a cocoa cluster in the zone. The farm is an area that was formerly rain forest and is now full of pastures, so cocoa farming will reverse to some extent this situation and create a new source of income for the rural population.

    Hi to all cocoa investors. My name is Leonardo Armijos, 35 y.o I am from Ecuador, where is grown one of the best quality of cocoa beans. I have currently 10 ha. of farm by the coast of Ecuador, in Esmeraldas to be exactly, the farm now is full of different plants and trees, which doesn't bring me incomes at all, so after I have worked, read and assisted to seminaries about the cocoa business, I am really interested in get into the business for my own, but for that I need help.

    I am looking for a great investor who wants to borrow me money or want to invest money on my farm to grow cacao and export, we together could do a lot. I got the farm and the knowledge about cocoa farming and you out there has the money and the contact where to sell it directly, so I do believe that is a good combination to succeed. We could grow even more as there are small farmers around that are selling their cocoa beans quite far from their location, so we could take all of them to reach big quantity. Looking forward to a great visionary investor. Greetings. Leo, Contact me: [email protected] can give my phone after mail.

    We are in the turnkey specialty coffee business, from "seed to cup", and are located in PANAMA. We are interested in adding to our business by diversifying into cacao, also on a turnkey basis, from "bean to bar". Our business model is "sustainable income from offshore sustainable agriculture". We believe in all 3 pillars of sustainability: environmentally, economically and socially. We rehire farm workers on farms we acquire and provide living wages, medical and pension benefits and a real profit-sharing bonus pool for all farm workers. Our goal is to help eradicate child labor. We are a small entrepreneurial firm specializing in private equity with access to capital from individual investors internationally. We have financed $7 million USD of coffee farm acquisitions/operations in Colombia and Panama in the past 2 years. DOES ANYONE HAVE CACAO FARMS FOR SALE? Our primary focus for now is Central America, particularly Belize, Nicaragua and Panama. Please email [email protected]
