Mr. Paul Ainoo, Chairman of the Cape Coast Farmers Cooperative Society limited (CCFCSL)...,
...has appealed to government to put in place a policy framework for the establishment of an institution, which would be responsible for the development and promotion of citrus and lime sector to prevent the sector from a total collapse.
He said due to the lack of a vibrant market and a body to manage the sector, most citrus and lime farmers have either cut down their citrus trees or have altogether deserted citrus farming for other means of livelihood whilst others were contemplating abandoning citrus farming for other ventures.
