Genetic study of cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) bean size in relation to agronomic traits



Genetic study of cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) bean size in relation to agronomic traits



Plantations, Recherche, Developpement 5(3): 195-200



Cocoa bean size was studied in a 6 x 6 diallel cross established in southwestern Cameroon, planted in 1974. Data concerning black pod (caused by Phytophthora spp.) frequency and yield evaluated during 1987-89 were used to study correlations between these traits and bean size. General combining ability was the main factor of variation in bean size, and this trait was highly heritable.
