these varieties were not taken up because farmers were more interested in growing palm oil for all time. There are not many farmers were interested in promoting these varieties even though that everyone is starting to see potential in the coconut industry in Malaysia. This varieties can be a new source of wealth because they can double the income of farmers if they venture accordingly. However, the seedlings of the new hybrid variety such as Matag Variety are currently insufficient for all the coconut farmers in the country. They are also more expensive than traditional varieties in which may be a challenge because most of the smallholders have limited budgets. The Malayan Yellow Dwarf and Malayan Red Dwarf are about RM 6.00 to RM10 per seedling while the Matag can go up to RM70 - RM90 because of the high demand. The three varieties produce a similar number of nuts per tree, but the Matag variety has thicker flesh in which is good for coconut oil, virgin coconut oil and coconut milk also for isotonic drinking. It is not easy to produce hybrid coconut seedlings. Someone has to climb the tree and induce pollination to get the required variety. In Malaysia there are not many with this skill belongs to UP and Department of Agriculture Coconut Station. Possibilities to import some seedlings of other good varieties are in progress by DOA. The government allocated RM50 million of its budget in every year from 2016 to help farmers purchase seedlings and replant. The money was also aimed at helping farmers improve the maintenance of their plantations and use fertilisers to increase productivity. Many years farmers did not bother to use fertiliser because they were not aware of its importance. Some just waited for the mature coconuts to fall before collecting them. DOA reported that before the nut production is very low. With the old CN1 (Malayan Tall) variety most farmers able to get 15,000 nuts per hectare if they use fertiliser. If not than they can only get 6,000 to 7,000 nuts per hectare per year. This initiative by the DOA and the government encourages farmers to use fertiliser and adopt agronomic practices or proper farm management. Good farm management practices are especially important today as the trees are facing threats from pests such as the rhinoceros beetle and red palm weevil. The red palm weevil is actually from the Middle East and could have come when people brought in date palms for ornamental purposes. It is quite devastating. The whole plant collapse because the weevil will eat the inside of the tree trunk. The Department of Agriculture is monitoring this very closely and under control by 2018. There are a lot of improvement of coconut industries in Malaysia since RMK 11 implementation. Thanks...
