This is Socfindo’s most productive options.
The dominant characteristic of this option is the ability to withstand biotic and abiotic stress conditions including water deficit, which enables a high number of bunches per tree.
The two categories are combined according to the location of planting, to maximise their complementary characteristics. Production in the first year of harvest can reach 15 to 18 tonne per hectare while the average potential production can reach 32 to 34 tonne per hectare.
Socfindo was granted the permit to release the varieties DxP LaMe and DxP Yangambi in 2004, as per Minister of Agriculture decree No 440/Kpts/LB.320/7/2004 and No 441/Kpts/LB.320/7/2004 respectively.
