Coconut (Cocos nucifera L) is a multipurpose plant that is relatively easy to grow across the country. Its existence is that as it grows naturally everywhere makes it got less attention in this country.
If coconut is planted well then it will be the strength of a typical agricultural economy of this country that can not be rivaled by any other country.
Coconut fruit is multi-purpose - never had trouble making market. Coconut has at least five markets, the first taken ‘nira’ for coconut sugar feedstock. Coconut sugar is increasingly needed in Indonesia because it is Low Glycemic - safer for people with diabetes.
Secondly picked fresh fruit for the young coconut drink - the drink is typical for a tropical country. Third-old picked for spices (coconut milk), which is required in a large number of dishes in this archipelago.
Fourth old picked to be used in a derivative of industrial raw materials such as coconut milk powder industry and the like. And the fifth is no less interesting is as the raw material for coconut oil or the more famous is the VCO - Virgin Coconut Oil, healthy oils increasingly high demand worldwide.
Coconut variety we grow is the kind of superior coconut or called early maturity coconut, fruiting in fifth year in the latest- with short trunk segments, so that fruit remains easily harvested - no need to climb.
Model for cost and revenue of coconut cultivation can vary widely, but as for coconut planted on this iGrow intended to be used for coconut sugar, the business model reference for this simulation is for coconut sugar raw materials.
Assuming begin harvesting in the fifth year with a ‘nira’ price range between Rp 3,000 to Rp 4,000 (equal to 0.25 USD until 0.35 USD) per liter, then the net result for the would be in the range of 12-15% per year.
