Though fertilizers have the potential to double cocoa yields on smallholder plots, most Nigerian farmers don’t have access to the credit they need to purchase these inputs. As a result, Nigerian cocoa producers are achieving only 30 percent of their potential yields. TechnoServe will play a key role in a pilot project linking an expected 500 smallholder Nigerian cocoa farmers to input credit by 2015.
