Abstract
Cultural requirements and methods to ensure good growth and yield of S. aromaticum and bananas intercropped with coconuts are presented and discussed. S. aromaticum can be successfully grown under >=20-year-old coconuts in Kerala, India. Intercropping S. aromaticum reduces yield compared with plants grown in monoculture, but enables the small holder of a coconut garden to increase profits.
