The fitted curves of MMF, Janosheck and Logistic growth model showed the same trend, but Von Bertalanffy showed a little differ from others.
The Gompertz and Logistic growth models were effective in describing the cacao fruit development (MUNIZ et al., 2017), and the fruits of the cashew tree (MUIANGA et al., 2016), dopequi (FERNANDES et al., 2015), and coffee tree (FERNANDES et al., 2014), giving satisfactory results, for all instances.

According to the results of goodness of fit in Gompertz and Logistic growth curve models the coefficient of determination (R2) and adjusted coefficient of determination (adj.R2) were detected above 0.996 in boot models for two genotype broilers.
