Competition. Currently the national average yield of coconut is 43 nuts/tree per year generating a ton of copra or less than 500 kilograms (kg) of vegetable oil/ha per year. PCA has been convincing more investors to put up copra processing plants and oil mills. Volcani Institute of Agricutural Reseach, Israel, Nguyen Nhut Xuan Dung; Luu Huu Manh; Udén, P., 2002. The physical presentation of copra meal has an important effect because it modifies bulk density. Effect of partial replacement of soybean meal with palm kernel meal and copra meal on growth performance, nutrient digestibility and carcass characteristics of finishing pigs. Central Europ. Areas of comparison are on per palm basis, and include nut yield, bunch production, and copra yield.Plots evaluated for each hybrid were planted with 131 palms per hectare (53 per acre), so to find out the yield per hectare, just multiply the figures in the table by 131 (or 53 if using acre). Evaluation of some agri-industrial by-products available in Samoa for goats. Digestibility and effect of copra cake on rate of gain, feed efficiency and protein retention of fattening pigs. 1000 coconuts yield 127 to 182 kg desiccated coconut. Schiemann, R., 1981. While these performances were satisfactory, they were lower than those obtained with a maize/soybean meal supplement and a 70% palm kernel meal supplement, possibly due to the lower palatability of copra meal (Oliveira et al., 2010). Methodology of each of these drying techniques as used in Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Sri Lanka, India and Sri Lanka is indicated. J. Anim. In the early 1900s copra was a major plantation product, and coconut palmoil a major export product for many countries. Indian J. Anim. Sun-drying is the cheapest method but if the weather is wet there is a risk of mold growth and aflatoxin contamination. Copra meal is poor in essential amino acids, notably lysine and sulphur amino acids (Sundu et al., 2009). Amino acid digestibility in copra expellers and palm kernel expellers by growing pigs. Commodity Products. Voluntary feed intake, live-weight gain and digestibility coefficients were mesured for goats receiving diets based on increasing levels of desiccated coconut waste meal. The high crude fibre content of copra meal is disadvantageous for aquatic feeds (Hertrampf et al., 2000). Copra is the dried meat or kernel of the coconut. McDonald, P.; Edwards, R. A.; Greenhalgh, J. F. D., 2002. While the level and quality of protein in copra meal protein are lower than those of soybean meal, copra meal may be a valuable and economical protein source for rabbits in areas where soybean meal is expensive (Haponik et al., 2009). (0.3 Mb PDF file) Nigeria's foods and foodstuffs. Copra meal inclusion at 7.5% of the diet does not have negative effects on digestibility but decreases voluntary intake due to its poor palatability or other unknown effects (Camacho Diaz et al., 2006). While, better still, the MNF option increased coconut yield in year 1, year 2 and ensuing years (years 3 to 5) by 50 %, 100%, and 150 % respectively. Bras. The average annual production of coconut during 1992-1996 was estimated to be 50 billion nuts, or 10 million metric tons of copra equivalents. However, the high fibre content of copra meal restricts its use in pig feeding. The fraction of rapidly fermentable N in the rumen of coconut meal is low, with values ranging from 19% (Sauvant et al., 2004), 20.1% (Kiran et al., 2007), to 22.4% (Mondal et al., 2008). FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture technical paper, 540. The utilization of coconut sap distillery by products by broiler chicks. . The oil content makes it a valuable energy source, particularly in areas where such sources are scarce (Daghir, 2008). To address the decline in production, the Philippine Genome Center Program for Agriculture of the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) is aiming to boost the coconut production to 150 nuts per tree per year through the coconut genomics program.

Coconut production remains crucial for the Asia-Pacific region, but coconut yields are dropping with aging as a top factor. Saude Prod. It also yields coconut cake after oil extraction, which is mainly used as feeds for livestock. Proc. Copra meal is also a good source of energy for rabbits and its gross energy, crude protein and oil are quite digestible. The less common solvent-extracted copra meal contains less oil (about 3% DM) and a little more protein (Feedipedia, 2011). Genetic correlations between these four characters have been ascertained.

It is used as food as it an important source of nutrients including proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Copra meal has been shown to be a suitable supplement for cows grazing tropical pastures in Fiji, where adding 1.8 kg/day of copra meal to the diet increased milk production by 70% (McIntyre, 1973). Effects on egg production of including high residual lipid copra meal in laying hen diets. summer irrigation @ 40 litres per palm per week will increase the yield of nuts by 50%. Therefore, the copra out-turn, as well as the oil percentage of copra had much relevance.

While global and national statistics on coconut production measure yield only in terms of oil and copra, and most coconut research and development has historically been classified as work to improve the productivity of oilseeds, this may not be the way smallholders view the coconut palm. Uses. Copra meal is a common feed ingredient, particularly for ruminants. Muhle + Mischfuttertechnik, 125 (3): 23-24, Lin, K. O. ; Zainal, Z.

Production per head varies considerably between the islands due to a variety of factors, Acta Sci. Expander processing of the copra meal did not affect growth performance when the product was included at 15% of the diet (O'Doherty et al., 2001). Rancidity makes copra meal unpalatable and animals can start rejecting it even when there are no obvious signs of the rancidity (Ehrlich et al., 1990). J. Anim. World Agroforestry Centre, Kenya, Owusu-Domfeh, K. ; Christensen, D. A. ; Owen, B. D., 1970. The sale price of Coconut: Rs 25 per piece (may vary for different regions). Nutritive value of some Ghanaian feedstuffs. Food and feed from legumes and oilseeds. This variety yields around 6000 tonnes of copra. The following is a table that shows the year-by-year yield data for the MAWA and MATAG hybrids. Food Agric., 41 (1): 45-53, Reynolds, S. G., 1995. Use of coconut meal in slaughter pig diets. Anim. Amino acid digestibility and concentration of digestible and metabolizable energy in copra meal, palm kernel expellers, and palm kernel meal fed to growing pigs. Unlike those by-products, copra meal is often obtained from mechanical extraction only and its oil content is generally quite high (about 10% DM, in the 5-15% range, with values higher than 20% possible). It must be used as soon as possible after processing, or dried in the sun or by other cheap means. Harvesting techniques, storage of coconuts and copra manufacture by natural drying are indicated in detail. THE competitiveness of coconut industry in the country could be increased . Several months later, the coconut yields markedly increased to 15,000 nuts per quarter. Adding copra meal to the diet gives comparable decreases in CH4 to refined coconut oil, but also decreases growth performance which would result in an extended finishing time. Copra meal can have a positive effect on rabbit meat quality: at 25% inclusion in the diet, copra meal lowers the palmitic acid content of rabbit meat without significantly affecting other fatty acids and may thus have a hypocholesterolaemic effect in humans (Souza et al., 2009).
