Mass coconut wilt and soil conditions at Selem Seed Farm, Zanzibar, Tanzania


Research and Training Newsletter Dar es Salaam 9(3/4): 18-22
Mass coconut wilt and soil conditions at Selem Seed Farm, Zanzibar, Tanzania
Following the mass wilting of hybrid coconut palms at the Selem Coconut Seed Farm (belonging to the National Coconut Development Programme) in Zanzibar, a study was made of the soil conditions at the farm to identify possible causes of the phenomenon. Three soil profile pits were dug in a transect cutting across a block of wilted palms and into blocks where the problem had not occurred. The profiles were described and sampled for physical and chemical analyses.
