Abstract
When there is good rainfall coastal alluvial loamy sands are well suited for the cultivation of coco-nuts. When choosing a site for planting special attention should be paid to surface drainage which, from my observations, is more important than sub-soil drainage, although the latter is of considerable importance as well. The growth of the tree, the colour of the fronds, and the size of the fronds are governed to a very large extent by the water supply in the soil. Swampy land should never, under any circumstances, be chosen as a planting site. Regard must, of course, be paid to the accessibility of the site in order that transport should be easy and inexpensive but this, of course, does not apply to the African peasant grower
