Abstract: The coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) palm eulogized as “Kalpavriksha” and “Tree of Heaven”, it provides not only edible parts but also fuel, shelter, medicine and employment to the millions of people in tropics. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design comprising ten treatments replicated thrice. The treatments were applied in three splits (viz., Stage I- June, Stage II- October and Stage III- February) in a year. The yield of the each palm was recorded throughout the year under experimental plot. The year wise yield was worked out and analyzed statistically. The application of RDF + Azadirachtin + Micronutrients through briquettes (Treatment T5) receiving highest yield along with maximum net return and B:C ratio. Therefore, it is concluded that the application of RDF along with Azadirachtin and Micronutrients through Konkan Annapurna Briquettes in three splits (i.e. June, October and February) is beneficial for increasing the yield of coconut with maximum profit.
