A bstract Cocoa farmers must decide on whether to rehabilitate (Rh) or to renovate (Re) a cocoa orchard when its productivity declines due to ageing, disease outbreaks or other causes. Deciding on Rh/Re is often a complex, expensive and conflictive process. In this review, we (1) explore the diversity of contexts, driving forces, stakeholders and r...
Article
Full-text available
Cocoa cultivation is labeled as a driver of both deforestation and reforestation, yet the extent of the phenomena varies at farm and landscape level and as a response to national and local contexts. In this study, we documented the main pathways and contexts behind cocoa cultivation in two sites with different histories of cocoa cultivation. We com...
Article

The tropical tree Theobroma cacao is the source of chocolate, and its seeds are a major export from many producing countries in Central and South America, Africa, and Asia. Every year, 30–40% of pre-harvest yield is lost due to disease damage. Host plant resistance is the most efficient and environmentally friendly approach for disease management....
Article
Full-text available
Moniliophthora Pod Rot (MPR) caused by the fungus Moniliophthora roreri (Cif.) Evans et al., is one of the main limiting factors of cocoa production in Latin America. Currently insufficient information on the biology and epidemiology of the pathogen limits the development of efficient management options to control MPR. This research aims to elucida...

Article
Full-text available
Cacao cultivation has been an important component of Central American culture and commerce since pre-Columbian times. However, during the last decades of the 20 th century, cacao production declined considerably in this region due to the dramatic impact of pod diseases, the low yield-potential of the plantations, and the frequent periods of low pri...
