Dear Sri Sakthivel,
Must appreciate your intrest on coconut farming. The said variety ALR CN is a good variety like East coast tall and west coast tall. But one thing is sure that any coconut tree performs well with good rain fall, more than 1000mm per year. If not ,sufficient ground water to be supplied, periodically, for good performance of the coconut tree ,of any variety.
Even with less rainfall and less ground water supply also ,a coconut tree may perform, but not upto satisfaction. this is to be in case of ALR CN variety coconut too.
Mosly coconut tree likes humid weather with sufficient periodical water supply.
There are so many other crops which are draught resistant, do good performance at low water requirement.
this is my dpinion.with best wishes, g.p.rao, farmer
Thank you G.P Rao sir,
We do cultivate crops like cotton, corn,chillies, sunflower etc, in addition we are planning to have coconut in 1 or 2 acres we feel there is sufficient water for 2 acres of coconut.
