Swollen-shoot disease of cocoa in Sierra Leone



Swollen-shoot disease of cocoa in Sierra Leone



Trop Agric 40(3): 229-232



During a survey in 1958 a disease of cocoa, subsequently shown to be caused by cocoa swollen-shoot virus, was found in 1 of 89 farms inspected in eastern Sierra Leone. This is the 1st report of CSSV occurring in Sierra Leone. The virus is very mild and has had little effect on trees known to have been infected for at least 4 years.
