Coconut palm responds to summer irrigation.
Husks / dusts can be added in alternate layers with soil.
Each palm requires 55 to 120 litres of water every day.
Drip irrigation is known to save about 30 – 40% water with 38% – 40% increase in yield compared to basin irrigation system apart from conserving soil and reducing the competition from weeds for water and nutrients.
The long spells of hot and dry weather, severe winters and extremes of temperatures are not favorable for coconut growing.
The well distributed rainfall ranging from 100 to 300 cm is favorable.
