Cocoa agroforestry system holds the key to sustainable future for organic cocoa production. But an important question being asked is how much of shade tree on cocoa farms can be altered in attempts to improve yields and still maintain the environmental benefits? Results showing different levels of cocoa agroforestry indicated that medium shade level uses less agrochemicals, supports biodiversity and has sustainable yield of about 500kg/Ha for over 70 years as compared to the full sun, low shade and heavy shade levels. Outreach focusing on medium shade may be the most effective way of optimizing ecological, economic, and social outcomes to build organic bridges in cocoa production.
