Agroforestry in the Cocoa Sector

For Ghana, the recommendation is to plant up to 18 emergent trees (≥12 m height) per hectare also providing permanent canopy cover corresponding to approximately 30–40% shade; For Ivory Coast, the regulatory authorities have defined the expectation of a canopy cover by forest trees of 30 to 50% for cocoa agroforestry systems with no specific nuer per hectare;

WLE’s Soil Organic Carbon Appliion calculates the quantity of organic carbon captured in a specific soil profile (tons per ha), based on SOC concentration (g per kg). The appliion offers a platform for users to visualize the organic carbon content of a soil of their choice, the quantitative impact of soil-conserving practices over time and the magnitude of SOC sequestration if out scaled.

The Impact of Nutrient Management Options on Soil …

Soil productivity depends largely on organic carbon stocks (SOC). The labile organic matter fraction or pool is associated with nutrient dynamics and responds sensitively to changes in management namely tillage, manuring, fertilization, mulching, etc.

The decayed leaves constitute carbon in the soil and that promotes plant growth,” says Fiati. So far, 23 communities in Garu and Tempane have adopted the approach, and 460 people were trained by the ministry of food and agriculture. Volunteers were also

Planting invasive species could make our carbon problem …

Plants, soil organisms, and herbivores all influence the carbon cycle—how carbon moves between different “pools” within living matter, soil, the oceans, and the atmosphere. When we plant trees for carbon sequestration, the goal is to shift some of the carbon from the atmosphere into plants and soil.

For basic research, soil microbial processes as related to soil health and nitrogen fixation, biochar, use of soil-applied polymers, and the optimization of C and nutrient flows are also recommended. Policy and development issues that enable the appliion of carbon-rich materials and the retention of crop residues in the soil are strongly encouraged.
