Studies were carried out on a seven-year-old dwarf x tall (CRIC 65) hybrid coconut to evaluate the usefulness of goat manure as a source of nutrients and as a soil ameliorant. Goat manure caused significant increase in nut yield (35.2%), copra weight (40.3%), nuts/bunch (20.5%) and female flowers/tree (15.5%) during the third year of experimentation. The increases for copra weight, nut weight, female flowers/bunch and number of bunches/tree ranged from 6.1% to 10.1% but were not significant. Goat manure also improved soil microbiological activity, organic matter content and water holding capacity. The results showed that goat manure has much scope as an organic fertilizer and as a soil ameliorant in coconut cultivation.
