At Jiwa Damai we produce useful research and we share it with the community. The following article is meant as a support for those who wish to learn about cacao, the black pod disease and methods how to deal with it. This article contains a short overview to the  history and the ecology of the cacao, a summary of the cacao plantation in Jiwa Damai and a description of the black pod disease. The article was the work of our volunteer, Cedric Ricci, under the supervision of Dr. Margret Rueffler.
