Project: Agronomic interventions to improve cocoa (Theobroma cacao) yield and quality at the plantation level

project duration
01/06/11 – 31/05/15

Yield of cocoa plantations world-wide are drastically declining, partly as a result of increased global demand for rubber and palm oil. The project aims at designing practical and economically and ecologically efficient agronomic interventions that sustainably raise both cocoa yield and quality at the plantation level.
