Abstract : The aim of this activity is to quantify the attractiveness levels of cocoa cultivars to mirids in the laboratory under controlled conditions. The method is proposed as a standard method for evaluation of adult plants for the International and Local Clone trials in countries where mirid attacks are common. It is recommended that this be applied as an early evaluation method, using nursery plants, provided that enough plant material is available. (Résumé d'auteur)
