Caption: Cocoa pod suffering from frosty pod rot. Frosty pod rot is an invasive disease caused by the fungus Moniliophthora roreri. It was originally identified in Ecuador in 1917, and spread rapidly to other countries in Latin America during the 1970s. Producing large quantities of powdery spores, it has a high potential for transmission and thus further extending its range. Infested plantations may suffer dramatic yield loss, leading to neglect of trees by farmers and complete loss of production.
