Cocoa is one of the most important crops grown in Western Samoa, but income from the crop has fallen dramatically in the last 25 years, partly because of the declining quality of the cocoa exported. The Cocoa Book was written by team members of the Samoa Cocoa Project in an attempt to help farmers revive the cocoa industry. Each stage in the production process is illustrated with simple line drawings. Pests and diseases are described and prevention and control measures recommended. The English version of the book has been funded by CTA. 'The Cocoa Book', 199O, 83pp IRETA Communication Support Centre USP Alafua Campus, Private Mail Bag Apia, WESTERN SAMOA
