Areca ROOT infested spindles fail to open and leaves are shredded, resulting in stunted growth. Various systemic insecticides have been found to give control. The moth of the inflorescence caterpillar Tirathaba mundella deposits eggs into the spadix.

The emerging caterpillars bore into the interior of the spathe and feed on the tender rachillae and female flowers and may also bore into the young buttons. To control this pest, Areca ROOT inflorescences are removed and burnt.

The root grubs affecting the areca palm are larvae of Leucopholis burmeisteri and L. They feed on the roots and may cause the palms to topple over. Visual symptoms are the drooping and the drying of leaves. Soil insecticides give effective control. Harvesting The stage Areca ROOT harvesting of areca palm depends on the product wanted. Immature fruits to supply "kalipak" an important form of processed areca nut in India can best be harvested when months old. For the mature nut product, fruits should be harvested fully ripe. In Indonesia, unripe fruits are harvested for home consumption, whereas fruits intended for trade are usually harvested ripe, because ripe fruits keep better. In closely and regularly spaced plantings harvesters climb the palms, cut the bunches, lower them down on a rope and move from one crown Areca ROOT the other.

Another method is to harvest bunches with a knife mounted on a bamboo pole. Yield In India mean annual yields of areca palm were of the order of kg dry nuts per ha around and kg per ha around Calculated mean yield of ripe nuts is about 2. The highest Areca ROOT ever recorded is 30 kg per palm per year. Handling after harvest The fruits are husked, either fresh or after drying, the embryos are removed, and the whole or sliced nuts are dried in the sun or with artificial heat; sometimes they are smoked. Ripe or almost ripe nuts, whole or sliced, may be boiled in water to which some of the concentrated liquid from previous boilings may be added; they are then dried.

Boiling reduces the tannin content of the nuts. The product is graded on the basis of the ripeness at harvesting and on the colour, shape and size of the nuts. Areca ROOT most popular trade type is the dried, Areca ROOT, whole nut "chali".

In Malaysia the nuts are not boiled. Here, the unripe or ripe fruits are usually split in two and dried in the sun or over an oven. Sometimes the fruits are dried Areca ROOT splitting, a slow process which gives an inferior product. In Taiwan the unripe fresh areca nut is directly used as an ingredient of the betel quid. Sixteen exotic accessions have been evaluated for yield in a long-term comparative trial, from which three accessions with high yield potential were released. None of the Areca ROOT cultivars has shown tolerance to yellow leaf disease, which makes identification of disease-tolerant genotypes a priority.


Areca ROOT Breeding Procedures for mother-tree and seedling selection in areca palm are well established. It has been found that early-bearing palms were constantly better yielders and that selection of seedlings at the appropriate time for number of leaves, girth at collar and number of nodes totally eliminated the late-bearing palms and so increased the yield of the population. However, it did not prove effective to implement these criteria in a mass pedigree selection programme.


Hybridization programmes involving selected exotic and local types were started in the early 70's, but so far no hybrids for commercial use have resulted. Areca ROOT hybrids between A. However, these hybrids are sterile and efforts to develop progenies combining the desired traits of both species have failed. Prospects Yields of areca per palm and per ha can be greatly increased by mother-tree and seedling selection and adequate crop husbandry. However, there is unlikely to be a substantial increase in total consumption, although consumption is increasing in Burma MyanmarBorneo, some Polynesian Islands and the highlands of Papua New Guinea.

In the rest of Asia chewing of betel quid is not popular with the younger generation. Because Areca ROOT the link between betel quid use and oral cancer, betel quid consumption should not be encouraged. Literature Bavappa, K. Editors The arecanut palm. Chadha, K. Advances in horticulture.

Areca palms have no such above-ground shoots to root. You can also propagate areca.
