Agronomic assessment of wild cocoa trees (Theobroma cacao L.) from the Camopi and Tanpok basins (French Guiana)

A study was made on approximately 1600 individual cocoa trees (T. cacao) representing 144 open-pollinated progenies and 11 wild populations identified in two river basins of French Guiana, based on the following selection criteria: juvenile growth (or vigour), adult vigour, the yield:vigour ratio, earliness of production, yield, average pod weight and losses due to rot in the field. Observations were carried out at CIRAD's Sinnamary station in French Guiana over a total of 10 years (1988-97).
