The value of NPV was bigger than 0 and IRR of cocoa farming was greater than 9% as the used interest rate.  The Pay Period analysis of the cocoa farming system showed thatthe initial cash outflow of investment could be recovered less than 25 years. The feasibility value showed that cocoa intercropping farming was better thancocoa monoculture farming.The changes of sensitivity analysis showed that the production cost increase was 7.26%, the production price decrease was 22% and theproduction quantity decrease was 14%. The results of sensitivity analysis showed that cocoa monoculture farming was more sensitive than cocoa intercropping farming.
