Abstract


This study was aimed at determining effect of fungicide Benlate and packaging media in high humidity conditions on cocoa seed vigor and viability.  The design used was a factorial completely randomized design (CRD) 3 by 3 with 3 replications. Fungicides consisted of three levels and packaging materials consisted of three levels. The results showed that fungicide Benlate exerted a significant effect on cocoa seed viability. The highest seed viability and vigor were found at a concentration 0.65% of fungicide, while the best packaging media was a perforated plastic polypropylene.  The best combination was obtained between fungicide Benlate of 0.65% and a perforated plastic polypropylene of packaging media.
