Cocoa black pod Symptoms
Cocoa black pod Symptoms

 

All above ground parts may show symptoms. On leaves, irregular shaped, pale, brown patches, sometimes with a purplish tinge, appear on the upper leaf surface. The leaf spots may enlarge and coalesce very quickly until the entire leaflet is killed. Under moist or humid conditions, a downy white mold growth appears near the leaf spot margins on the undersurface of the foliage.

The disease can develop very quickly, causing severe defoliation of entire fields within two weeks under ideal conditions (moist with moderate temperatures). In dry weather, infected plants appear burned with shrivelled foliage, but the disease will not progress.
