One of India’s top agricultural export commodities is coconut and related goods. When it comes to coconut production, India leads the world. India is the third-largest producer of coconuts in the world as of the years 2020–2023, producing 16.9 billion nuts from a plantation that covers over 1.89 million hectares. Even though India is one of the world’s top producers of coconuts, with productivity of 7779 nuts per hectare compared to 3630 nuts per hectare in Indonesia and 3859 nuts per hectare in the Philippines, the estimated annual availability of coconuts per person is only 10 nuts, which is quite low when compared to 222 of the other top producers.
Key words: Awareness, Promotion Schemes, India, Coconut Cultivation, Survey Method.
