Burkina Faso, a country experimenting with producing cocoa
Compared to the Ivory Coast and Ghana, Burkina Faso's annual production of cocoa beans is negligible. Nevertheless, in the past few years, cocoa tree plantations have been set up on the irrigated plain of Niofila, 25 miles west of Banfora. More experimental than commercial, this production symbolizes Burkina Faso's renewed interest in the area. In the country itself, cocoa is sold as an exotic product, but doesn't have a place is local culinary conditions. Cocoa trees are grown alongside banana trees and fields of rice and corn. The modest production is destined exclusively for local consumption.
Favorable agricultural conditions
Growing cocoa trees depends on a large number of climactic and soil condition factors. Temperatures cannot get lower than 68°F, all the while being somewhat consistent. The dry season cannot last longer than four to five months, but can also stretch to six months if irrigation is guaranteed. Soil must be deep, loose and light. Certain research organizations have declared that the Burkinabe provinces of Comoé, Léraba and Kénédougou, in the Hauts-Bassins region, are possibly favorable for cocoa bean cultivation. Still, some basic problems hinder the realization of these projects. The question of the profitability of producing cocoa in Burkina Faso remains uncertain.
