with cacao trees

Working with collaborators in Brazil’s cacao research center CEPLAC (Comissão Executiva do Plano da Lavoura Cacaueira), the researchers are measuring clovamide content in existing cacao tree populations. The goal of this work is to see how well clovamide content correlates with disease resistance in a field setting.
