      Agriculture is a major sector of Sabah's economy after timber and forest industry. In , palm oil contributed 20% to the total export of Sabah, which worked out to be approximately RM 2, million. In , 43, hectares of land was planted with cocoa. In .   Cocoa farming is the backbone of Ghana’s economy. , small scale cocoa farmers make up 60% of the country’s agricultural base. However, despite their importance to Ghana’s development, many cocoa farming families live in poverty. Cocoa farmers earn a per capita daily income of approximately USD $$ on cocoa.

      Pest control is at least as old as agriculture, as there has always been a need to keep crops free from long ago as BC in Egypt, cats were used to control pests of grain stores such as rodents. Ferrets were domesticated by AD in Europe for use as mousers. Mongooses were introduced into homes to control rodents and snakes, probably by the ancient Egyptians. Environmental impacts Full sun cocoa. Cocoa farms are generally small, family owned and operated businesses. There are approximately million cocoa farms around the world. The majority of cocoa farms are located in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana. In Ghana, Cocoa contributes 64% of all exports. Traditional cocoa farms are planted in the shade among other crops and trees.

      Plant disease, an impairment of the normal state of a plant that interrrupts or modifies its vital functions. Plant diseases can be classified as infectious or noninfectious, depending on the causative agent. Learn more about the importance, transmission, diagnosis, and control of plant g: cocoa. New recommendation on the timing of insecticide application on cocoa in Ghana. The calendar-based pest control programme, from August through to December was based on recommendations issued in thes. Studies on the temporal distribution of the two important mirid species revealed that there is a shift in the pest population dynamics.

Weed control is the botanical component of pest control, which attempts to stop weeds, especially noxious weeds, from competing with desired flora and fauna including domesticated plants and livestock, and in natural settings preventing non native species competing with native species.

Weed control is important in s include hand cultivation with hoes, powered cultivation. The effect of different initial adult population densities of Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) at several post infestation storage times on the final adult population density, the percentage of damaged beans, the percentage of weight loss, and the weight of insect feeding residues on cocoa beans was investigated in laboratory experiments.

Both factors interactively had highly significant (P Missing: Sabah. The cocoa production increased from, about 2, tons in to about 3, tons in and subsequent years. The average yields however remain low because many farms are old and extensive cultivation methods are used. Farmers wishing to increase their cocoa output established new farms elsewhere in the forest zone.

The Cocoa Pod Borer (CPB) is the most devastative insect pest of cocoa in Malaysia and South East Asia countries since their first discovery in A textbook providing basic data about the crop pests and the damage they inflict throughout the tropics and sub-tropics. Each major pest is illustrated by either a line drawing or a photograph, and sometimes the damage can also be seen.
