Model of cultural control of the cacao frosty pod rot disease (Moniliophthora roreri (CIF & Par) Evans et al.)1


The Cacao Frosty Pod Rot (Moniliophthora roreri (Cif. & Par.) Evans et al)1 is a disease with the greatest impact on cacao crop yields in Central and South America. It was recently detected in the state of Acre, Brazil. Although its control has been proven in various ways, cultural control has been checked to be the most effective and economical. The proposed model is based on the recognition of the critical states of the fruits as sources of infection, the disease cycle, the timely removal of diseased fruits and their free disposal on the soil.
