This Penn State study examines the effectiveness of endophytic bacteria on cacoa trees as a biocontrol agent for witches' broom. The study involved field trials on seedlings with various levels of susceptibility. The application of bacteria was found to be most effective for tolerant genotype seedlings, but was not statistically significant for highly resistant strains.
