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



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



Plant Genetic Resources Newsletter ( 124): 1-6



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).
