A review of breeding work on disease resistance of cocoa in Nigeria



A review of breeding work on disease resistance of cocoa in Nigeria



Proceedings of the International Workshop on the Contribution of Disease Resistance to Cocoa Variety Improvement, Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, 24-26 November, 1996: 167-171



Breeding activities on cocoa started in Nigeria in 1912, with deliberate genetic manipulation of the crop beginning in 1931 and breeding for disease resistance undertaken about 27 years later. Since then, disease resistance has featured as an integral part of all the cocoa breeding programme phases to date.
