Cocoa (cacao)    None Given

What other kind of chemical spray does cocoa needs aside from insecticides

Depending on where you live, cacao is very resilient and requires very little chemical input. I wouldn't recommend calendar sprays for your cacao plants until there are serious disease or pest concerns. I have many growers who practice cultural controls (pruning, sanitation, proper fertilizers, etc.) and are "organic" only because they require no other inputs.
