Cocoa yield uplift

Meliora has been tested on over 200 locations in West Africa, with a combination of replicated trials and large demonstration trials. As shown on the graph, the average yield uplift over four years of testing was 300 kg/ha of dry beans, which equates to 37%. More data can be found on the data sheet.
