Collecting information in order to elaborate the CIC database

Collecting information in order to elaborate the CIC database

This project consists of collecting all available information as a result of the characterization of different varieties of cacao at a national and international level, in terms of agronomic criteria of economic importance (productivity, sensory quality, heavy metal accumulation, resistance to pests, adaptation to climatic and soil conditions, etc.). This project constitutes a fundamental first step in order to take advantage of the work previously done by multiple researchers and avoid duplicating efforts starting from scratch.
