Ivory Coast 2019/20 cocoa main crop seen in line with last season - poll

ABIDJAN, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast's 2019/20 cocoa main crop is expected to be between 1.65 million and 1.7 million tonnes, broadly in line with 1.66 million tonnes in the previous season, according to a poll of seven exporters and pod counters.

The outlook for the October-March main crop is an increase on a 1.58-million-tonne forecast by pod counters and exporters in July and comes after weeks of favourable weather, they said. (Reporting By Ange Aboa Editing by Edward McAllister)
