ANNOUNCEMENT.

Department of Agriculture Cocoa Industry
Improvement Scheme Plant Distribution
1956.

THE production of rooted cocoa cuttings was
adversely affected by the hurricane which
struck Grenada on September 22nd, 1955. Fhe
propagators and nurseries were severely damaged
on the three cocoa stations, and caused a great loss
of plants and the cessation of propagation for a
period of months.
The potential demand for plants has increased
considerably since Janet, and it has, therefore, been
decided by the Cocoa Rehabilitation Board to
increase the production of rooted cocoa cuttings
from 200,000 to 500,000 per annum.
The only method of achieving this increase in
plant production as soon as possible, is by the
immediate expansion of nursery areas, from which
material is obtained for propagation.


1I


148


The greater numlc-r of plants, therefore, which
are now available shiail be planted in nurserie- this
year.
There shall, howel er, be a limited number of
plants for distribution which shall be available for
replacements or s.z/ppl, jii f dead plants in exist-
ing clonal cocoa plots.
A very careful check should be made of all dead
plants in existing clonal cocoa plots, and this in-
formation should be forwarded in writing to the
Agricultural Officer (Cocoa), Mt. Horne Cocoa
Station, St. Andrew's. before the 31st May, 19-G.
The name of the owner and the location of the
plot should be clearly stated on the application
for supplies.
In the circumstances, there shall be no rooted
cuttings available for the planting of new clonal
cocoa plots this year, and we regret to inform all
persons who forwarded applications in 1955 for
clones for planting new areas this year (1956), that
their requests for plants cannot be met and their
applications are therefore cancelled.
It is estimated that there shall be approximately
200,000 plants available for distribution in 1957,
and the Department of Agriculture, shall at a later
date, publish a notice in the local press inviting
applications for cocoa cones for planting in 1957.
