Abstract:

In cocoa, four yielding categories viz., [‘Low’ ( 3.0 kg)] were evaluated for standardization of seedling selection criteria at nursery stage. The results showed that the highest germination percentage, seedling height, girth, number of leaves, leaf area and seedling vigour were registered in high and very high yielding categories compared to other yielding categories.
