Field tests for antixenosis (feeding non-preference) and tolerance of cocoa trees to mirid damage were conducted as part of the CFC/ICCO/IPGRI Project, in the budwood garden of IRAD Nkolbisson Station. Antixenosis was assessed by counting the number of mirid bites on the flush after 24 hours, while assessment of tolerance was based on regular observations of the evolution of mirid damage and of the ability of twigs to recover from it. An analysis of covariance, with the surface area of the… CONTINUE READING
