This manual is adapted from S. David. 2005. Learning about sustainable cocoa production: a guide for participatory farmer training. 1. Integrated crop and pest management. Sustainable Tree Crops Program, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Yaoundé, Cameroon. March 2005 version. It serves as technical background material and was adapted for use in the Sierra Leonean context with a view that farmers comply with organic standards. Expected results are that members: obtain greater understanding of the agro-ecosystem of cocoa plantations and understand the purpose of the various crop husbandry activities; are able to produce good-quality cocoa; know the role of their association/co-operative in the cocoa supply chain and the services they can expect from their organization; know their own responsibility as a member and understand why they have to pay their membership fees and participate in the democratic decision making structure; and, are aware of gender issues within the organization.
