However the situation is nowhere as bad as it might one day become, because not one of the major troubles is yet pan-tropical in distribution. Diseases can however be spread by the movement of planting material and there are obvious needs for such movement either for planting in new areas or for plant breeding purposes. The purpose of this paper is to examine the risks attached to the movement of planting material and the quarantine measures designed to minimise those risks.

Wherever cocoa is grown farmers are burdened by diseases and pests. However the situation is nowhere as bad as it might one day become, because not one of the major troubles is yet pan-tropical in distribution. Diseases can however be spread by the movement of planting material and there are obvious needs for such movement either for planting in new areas or for plant breeding purposes. The purpose of this paper is to examine the risks attached to the movement of planting material and the quarantine measures designed to minimise those risks.
