The Fertilisation of Cacao

, : The Fertilisation of Cacao. Gardens Bulletin, Straits Settlement, Singapore, Dec. 15th. 1: 6, 195 p

The number of cacao pods formed on a tree is very much out of proportion to the number of flowers produced. Mr. G. A. Jones, who has experimented to find the reason of this, has noticed that if the common red ants which tend green fly about the flowers are kept away, no pollination results.
