SATCocoa Phase 1: Choosing seeds and growing seedlings

The grower can buy at research centres
  • either selected seeds of good quality
He sows the seeds in a nursery bed or in baskets. Later, he plants out the seedlings in the plantation.
  • or young seedlings of good quality
He plants them straight away in the plantation.
  • Some growers have no research centre nearby.
They can nevertheless have good cocoa plantations by:

¬ choosing their own seeds,
¬ sowing their seeds in a nursery bed,
¬ planting out their seedlings in the plantation.

Nursery bed is the name for the place where the seeds are sown to make them germinate.
