AbstractFull Text

Fungal diseases, and their management, severely limit the production of cocoa in Peru. In that context, UNAS initiated a systematic and consistent program of: disease survey, pathology biology studies, epidemiological and progress studies, determination of control strategies and evaluation of the...

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Using conventional pesticides in crop protection has raised serious environmental concerns and there is therefore a need for integrated pest management (IPM) methods. In this paper, we found that the spacing of trees can impact disease, which could result in a reduction in pesticide...

Abstract

This chapter discusses the advances in biological control of cacao diseases over the last 15 years. Most attention has been focused on biological control of frosty pod rot (Moniliophthora roreri), witches' broom (Moniliophthora perniciosa) and black pod disease (Phytophthora spp.). Research on...

Abstract

Tabasco, México is the main cacao-producing State and concentrates 70% of the national cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) crop. Moniliophthora roreri, causal agent of frosty pod rot of cacao (FPR), is the main parasitic infestation that limits cacao production in the state; losses caused by this parasite...

AbstractFull Text

Studies were conducted to evaluate Moniliophthora roreri control by analysing incidence and severity parameters using native and commercial strains of Trichoderma spp., combined with agronomic practices (AP). Ten treatments that included agronomic practices, biological products, native fungal...

Abstract

Vegetation composition and plant spatial structure affect disease intensity through resource and microclimatic variation effects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the independent effect and relative importance of host composition and plant spatial structure variables in explaining disease...

AbstractFull Text

The fungus Moniliophthora roreri, causal agent of frosty pod rot, is the main limiting disease of cocoa (Theobroma cacao) production in Tabasco, México. The fungicide azoxystrobin was assessed as a healing agent of M. roreri. In vitro, azoxystrobin at 450 mg L-1 inhibited 100% of the conidial...

AbstractFull Text

Frosty pod rot of cocoa, induced by Moniliophthora roreri has become the principal parasitic limitation for cocoa production in Tabasco (Mexico), which has prompted studies on its temporal progress and management. The temporal progress was desumed from estimation of the percentage of diseased...
