Studies on the coconut palm. III. Coconut husk. A. The manurial value of coconut husk ash



Trop. Agriculturist. 86: 131-8



The paper is the first of a series of studies on the proper utilization of husk for manurial purposes on coconut estates. The studies have been planned by the Soil Chemist's Department of the Coconut Research Scheme. Husks, unless they can be sold to fibre mills, are usually buried between the rows of palms, mulched round trees after manuring in circular trenches during drought, used for filling up drains and low lying portions of land and in the preparation of ash by burning.
