2014 Seminar on grafting and budding techniques by CRC cocoa propagation specialists

The Budding and Grafting of Cocoa

A Seminar on cocoa plant propagation techniques for farmers in Grenada

CRC grafting specialists (Dr. Thayil Sreenivasan, Vinosh Jadoo, and Annelle Holder-John) will introduce Grenadian cocoa growers to state-of-the-art budding and grafting techniques in a three-day seminar to help revive the industry plagued by poor productivity and inefficient propagation techniques. The exercise will be much like a 'Train the trainer' event to build capacity within Grenada as the participants who benefit will share their knowledge with cocoa growers across the island.

Date: February 17-19th, 2014 (9:00 am - 4:00 pm)

Place: Maran Nursery in Gouyave

Funded (in part) and presented by: Cocoa Farming Future Initiative (CFFI), with the cooperation of the Grenada Cocoa Association (GCA) and assistance from the Grenadian Ministry of Agriculture
