The swollen shoot phase of the virus disease oi Cacao in Ceylon



The swollen shoot phase of the virus disease oi Cacao in Ceylon



F.A.O. Pl. Prot. Bull. 5(11): 165-168



In Feb. 1957 cacao trees at the Kandasale Cacao Research Station, Kandy, Ceylon, exhibited stem swelling, with vein flecking and an oak-leaf pattern on the leaves. Since then the swollen shoot symptom has been noticed on several occasions. Swelling was also found on a bud graft at the Pallekelly Estate, Kandy. So far, stem swelling has been seen only sporadically, on seedling trees, either on plagiotrophic (fan) or orthotrophic (chupon) branches.
