Chapter synopsis: Frosty pod rot (FPR) of cacao (Theobroma cacao) is caused by Moniliophthora roreri. FPR commonly can reduce yields by over 80% and is extremely difficult to manage. This chapter reviews the origins, spread and impact of Moniliophthora roreri. It also discusses methods for managing FPR, from strategies for prevention, early detection and rapid response (EDRR), to impact mitigation using integrated approaches. These include cultural control, supplemented by chemical, biological and genetic approaches.
