Upper West: shea butter nursery seedling initiated at Kokoligu
The Nandom Municipal Assembly in the Upper West Region, in collaboration with the Cocoa Research Institute, has established a shea seedling nursery at Kokoligu.
The seedlings with a gestation period of between 3 and 4 years will be distributed to farmers when they mature.
MCE for the Municipality, Thaddeus Aasoglenang, said the nursery is part of a grand scheme for a Shea Butter Processing Factory, to be set up in Nandom, to improve the production of Shea.
Speaking to GBC’s Radio Ghana, Mr. Aasoglenang said the Shea Plantations, will ensure that the Processing Factory does not run out of raw materials.
