 ABSTRACT

Multi-stage sampling procedure was used to select 120 respondents out of which 113 responded. The respondents were made up of 70 cocoa cooperators and 43 cocoa non-cooperators from five communities in the study area. A well designed questionnaire was used to collect data. The collected data were analyzed using frequency counts, percentages, means and I-test analysis. The study showed that that the mean ages of cooperators and non- cooperators were 58 years and 64 years respectively. The distributions of the respondents based on their age group indicate that majority 84.3% and 65.1% of cooperators and non- cooperators fell within 30-60 years. The educational status of the respondents showed that majority of respondents' possessed tertiary education. Majority 87.1% of cooperators and 79.1% of non-cooperators were married and has above 15 years experience. The mean farm sizes of cooperators and non-cooperators were 5.8 and 6. The mean output and income of cooperators were 53.64kg and #75,543 while the mean for non-cooperators were 48.02kg and #73,651. Cooperative societies in the study area played leading roles in cocoa production and marketing as they assisted cooperators in marketing of produce, storage of harvested products, supply of agro-chemicals, supply of improved varieties, supply of fertilizer and credit supply which has effect on the output and income of cooperators. Results ~f hypotheses tested in the study revealed that the farm output and income of' cooperators were significantly higher than that of non-cooperators. Recommendation was made that cooperative societies should encourage their members by organizing seminars and workshop training for their members at regular intervals.
