Coconut tree climbers: 1 call away! Woooooaahhh…
The state named after the Coconut tree was facing a serious shortage of coconut tree climbers. Across the state from coconut farm owners to people with coconut trees on their backyards had the same complaint, ” there are no coconut climbers to be found!” . Now the Coconut Development Board (CDB) has done a marvellous job, they have updated their website with the contacts details of 1000 tree climbers across districts trained by the board couple of months ago.
The list gives you the contact details of coconut climber from each district. So when its time for some coconut harvesting, you simply call up your nearest coconut tree climber and get your coconuts down fresh and ready . The board decided to help owners and revive coconut cultivation by offering professional training to youth under the ‘Friends of Coconut’ programme. The programme aims to recruit 5,000 youngsters who will embrace this profession within a year.
The program envisages a comprehensive training module covering coconut climbing technique, harvesting operations, pest control measures, pollination and hybridization methods, plant protection operations and identification of tender, mature and seed nuts. The list of coconut tree climbers is available athttp://coconutboard.gov.in/Friends-district.htm.
PS: try calling and share your experience. This Gallan din’t cos he doesn’t have a coconut tree at his home.
