COLLEGE FARM ENTERPRISES
The college has three farm enterprises namely; cocoa, citrus and oil palm in addition to a livestock project. These enterprises are on a farm size holding of approximately 27.1 acres (10.7 hectares). Table 1 illustrates the farm size holdings of the various enterprises with cocoa having the largest farm size holding of about 11.5acres, followed by oil palm 9.8 acres and citrus 5.8 acres all translating into 4.46, 3.92 and 2.32 hectares respectively. These are old farm establishments where the main activities carried out are regular agronomic practices and farm maintenance operations. Aside these, there are new farm establishments of cocoa and oil palm to gradually replace the old ones.New Farm Establishments
- Cocoa Currently the college has embarked on two main projects on cocoa with a third one in the offing, granted additional labour is given to support the current labour strength to make it a reality.
- Oil palm There is a 3.9 acre oil palm plantation behind bungalow No. 5 which has started flowering. This is a new establishment in addition to a 10 acre plot along site 3 road. The land has been prepared and seedlings are ready to be transplanted to the field anytime soon.
We have a 3.0 acre new cocoa establishment behind BLOCK 'J' which is doing very well. This area was originally planted with citrus but with low income. Management saw it prudent and economically viable to turn it into cocoa. In addition, a 1.5 acre seed garden which was initially citrus plantation has also started vigorously.
With an anticipated additional labour, the 12 acre uncultivated land at cocoa area section 'B' which is now being encroached upon by individuals could also be put to productive use by planting cocoa or raising a seed garden for commercial purposes to beef up the college's income generation ventures.

ANIMAL HUSBANDARY PROJECT
The college's animal husbandry project is actively being pursued and all indicators are positive. The reproductive rate of the livestock is phenomenal. This could be attributed to proper veterinary care and good feeding schedules put in place by management for the animals.
