- The genetic prospection materials, collected by PORIM in DRC, were planted in trial at Yaligimba Research Station (DRC). The FFB and vegetative development measurements of progenies from 8 ecotypes, 56 sites were evaluated in a field experiment by ecotype, site and progeny. It was noted that progenies from the site located in the worst conditions in mountain performed well and gave the best results when planted in good environment. Progenies with exceptional high yield, close to the best selected progenies have been identified. These materials could be used efficiently for future breeding program.
