Estimating the volume of cocoa fruit






Revista Brasileira de Fisiologia Vegetal 1(1): 115-117

Estimating the volume of cocoa fruit

One hundred fruits of different sizes were sampled and their volume was estimated by 3 geometrical formulae based on fruit length and diameter. The volume of each fruit was also measured by water displacement and the estimated and measured volumes were compared. The ellipsoid formula gave the smallest deviation.

Field studies showed that 10.5% of cocoa fruit loss is caused by C. perniciosa with 88% occurring during the first 2 months of fruit development. However, the major fruit loss is related to fruit wilt caused by physiological disorders. Other cause...

Tovar, G.; Ortiz, M., 1991: Witches' brooms of cocoa on the Piedemonte plains of Colombia: a profile of cocoa fruit losses caused by bean wilt, cryptogamic agents and insects. Witches' brooms (caused by Crinipellis perniciosa) caused 10.5% of the total cocoa fruit loss, but the highest yield loss was caused by physiological wilt. Fruit were the most susceptible to C. perniciosa during the first 2 months of their de...
