Ivory Coast Rainfall Report for Cocoa Areas, April 1-10

April 13, 2012

The following are rainfall figures for Ivory Coast, the world’s biggest cocoa producer, for April 1 to April 10, according to the National Meteorological Service.

The central-western Daloa region is the West African nation’s biggest cocoa-growing area geographically, with average annual production of about 300,000 metric tons.

The southwestern Soubre region, including the western coastal towns of San Pedro, Tabou and Sassandra, also produces about 300,000 tons a year.

The figures are tabulated under weather station, the amount of rainfall received, long-term average rainfall over the last 30 years, the number of days it has rained, and the amount of rainfall in the same period last year. Rainfall amounts are in millimeters.
