OUR INTUITIVE SOLUTION FOR THE ISSUE
In result of the flower of Yazhpanam (Tall) variety mixes with COD (Dwarf)flower naturally by honeybees this pollination happens and that results in forming a new breed D x T, however the productivity is very less in natural pollination. In order to meet the demands, we follow the same procedure by manually mixing the flowers to bring productivity, and we would like to clarify this is not a genetically changed breeds, this is a natural variety which gives the maximum. Yield as of coconut tree is concerned.
TxD – Tall x Dwarf
This is one of the Hybrid Tall Variety Coconut saplings. On an average it bears about 300 seedlings. The average life span of the plant is about 50-55 years. The coconut weight is about 800gms on a average. The coconut can be used for Copra as well as tender coconut. The height of the plant will be about 50 – 60 feet. This variety is produced when the Flowers from dwarf plant (Chawaghad Orange Dwarf) gets cross pollinated with the tall variety (West Coast Tall). In this case the West Coast Tall acts as the Female and the Chawaghad Orange Dwarf acts as the Male.
TOGETHER WE DISCOVER THE POTENTIAL
There are two ways of cross pollination one is done by honeybee, and the other done by us manually to meet the demands of the seedlings. The nuts which is used for growing the saplings are from 25 to 40 years old healthy plants. The spacing to be considered while planting the sapling should be 25*25 feet between each plant. The pit must be 2.5*2.5 in depth and width.
