Abstract

This chapter helps us understand the diversification dynamics of family farms in eastern Ghana. The region is not only one of the oldest cocoa growing areas of the country but also one of its most diversified. At the beginning, only cocoa was grown here. But over the past 30 years other perennial crops like oil palm and orange have emerged, with the former gradually becoming the dominant crop. The aim of this chapter is to analyze the factors that led to this diversification, as well as assess its effects at the regional and farm levels.
