Detailed measurements of this process were carried out in a partially shaded cacao plantation. The results show that the rate of rainfall interception in a cacao canopy depends on phenological and climatic factors. Its seasonability is related to rainfall patterns and there is a maximum (27 percent) and minimum (13 percent) loss in autumn and summer respectively.
