There was association between number of damaged cocoa pods to all three variables (p minor 0.05), however, their correlations were considered weak to moderate (r=0.4185, r=0.5140, r=0.2441, respectively). In combination, these three factors explained only 42 per cent of the variability in total damage to cocoa pods.
