The Saga of Cocoa

Artist Portia Dzamvivie

Cocoa has been important to Ghana’s economy since the crop’s introduction into the country. The Swollen shoot disease has major effects on cocoa. The causative virus is transmitted from one tree to the other by mealybug vectors. This was first discovered in Ghana in 1936. One of the most effective ways of controlling the disease is by cutting the cocoa tress. The digital drawing shows scenes where farmers protested against cutting down of their trees.
