Effects of nursery beds and different sizes of polythene bags on germination, growth and development of cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) seedlings



Effects of nursery beds and different sizes of polythene bags on germination, growth and development of cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) seedlings



Tropical Agriculture 80(1): 54-58



This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of different sizes of black polythene bags and nursery beds on the germination and growth of cacao (T. cacao) seedlings and to compare the cost of these methods with the traditional methods of establishing cacao plants. The cacao beans planted in the nursery beds recorded the highest mean value of percentage germination (85%), followed by those planted in medium-sized bags and forestry bags (84.5% each).
