    Togo: National federation of cashew producing cooperatives eyes 130,000 tons output by 2024

    (Togo First) - In Togo, the national federation of cashew producing cooperatives (FNCPA) expects local cashew output to rise from 20,000 tons currently to 130,000 tons by 2024.

    To achieve this target, the FNCPA with the support of the ministry of agriculture, launched in the central region a workshop to train farmers to cashew grafting. Besides, the federation plans to provide the workshop’s participants with quality seedlings and help them shorten seedlings’ productivity cycle.

    It will also develop orchards with grafted seeds for which first flowering begins after five months.

    Let it be recalled that the government has already disbursed a three-year financing, valued at $5.6 million, for a project that aims to boost sales capacity and sustainability of the cashew and shea nut sector in Togo.
