Abstract

Over four decades of research indicate that the cultivar CRIC65 is capable of
producing a sustained higher yield compared to CRIC60 in the absence of adverse
soil water deficit. Data indicate that the cumulative yield of nuts and copra are 50%
higher in CRIC65 than in CRIC60 over a period of 32 years. Inadequate soil water
would appear to be the main limiting factor to the yield production in CRIC65. The
argument is, therefore made, that if coconut is to be grown under irrigation, the
cultivar CRIC65 should be selected due to its high potential productivity.
