About this book

This text is aimed at guiding those who work with small-scale farmers and farmer groups through the complex area of coconut management. It should also be of value to the many processors and other people whose livelihoods depend on coconuts. The emphasis is on the need for training and education of coconut smallholders in how to become good managers, using appropriate techniques and materials. Modern Coconut Management combines information that exists in this areas with new research in diseases and pests, and breeding techniques to improve crop performance. It also deals with coconut based farming systems in which many aspects of the combination of coconuts with other crops and/or animals are discussed. Equally important are processing techniques which are vital to the survival of the coconut industry. There is a sectoin of Modern Coconut Management devoted to post-harvest treatment, processing and research where the many new developments in the processing of coconut products are discussed.
