Review of cocoa breeding in Sabah Proceedings

by Jones, E; Quesnel, V.C; Chalmers, W.S; Fordham, R; Iton, E.F. eds; Chee Yau Fah; Murray, D.B; Cocoa Research Institute, St. Augustine (Trinidad y Tobago); 4. International Cocoa Research Conference St. Augustine (Trinidad y Tobago) 8-18 Ene 1972.
Publisher: St. Augustine (Trinidad y Tobago) 1972Description: p. 73-76.Subject(s): THEOBROMA CACAO | PROGRAMAS DE MEJORAMIENTO | VARIEDADES DE RENDIMIENTO ELEVADO | RESISTENCIA A LA ENFERMEDAD | HIBRIDACION | SABAH | MALASIA | THEOBROMA CACAO | DISEASE RESISTANCE | HYBRIDIZATION | SABAH | MALAYSIA | THEOBROMA CACAO | RESISTANCE AUX MALADIES | HYBRIDATION | SABAH | MALAISIESummary: The general approach and the programme of Cocoa Breeding in Sabah have been presented and discussed. At present, the main objective in cocoa breeding is to breed for high yielding varieties that can adapt to local condition. The incorporation of disease resistance genes into the population is also considered. The idea of cutting short the breeding programme by identifying the parents genetically for future hybridisation planning and the possibility of bringing plant to its homozygous state through haploid plant are discussed. Some progeny trial results have been presented and the idea of sorting out better hybrids based on more criteria have also been attempted
