Abstract:

A semi-automatic coconut de-husker developed at ICAR-CPCRI, Kasaragod, Kerala was tested for its performances for three sizes of West Coast Tall (WCT) coconut variety based on their circumference i.e. Large (50-55 cm), medium (45-50 cm) and small (40-45cm). De-husking capacity of large, medium and small size coconuts were observed as 193 nuts/h, 155 nuts/h and 94 nuts/h with de-husking efficiency of 98%, 97% and 35% respectively. There was significant difference in de-husking capacity of all three sizes of nuts. In case of de-husking efficiency, large and medium size nut exhibited insignificant difference but small size revealed significantly lower efficiency.
