Some of the challenges are not having modern equipments, they cultivate manually and this reduces the acreage tilled,it increases labour cost and reduced production, cultivation is also tough due to tree populated forests that requires so much labour to clear etc.

Unfortunately, people are cutting it down to give way to industrial agriculture, logging it for construction and firewood and what they refer to as development. So we also work to reawake the people of Badagry about the many benefits of Coconut through creative exhibition of foods and products that can be obtained through Coconut.
