Abstract

Coconut, arecanut and cocoa are considered major plantation crops and have been the mainstay of agrarian economies in the country. The products and byproducts of these crops form vital ingredients for many industries and support the livelihood of millions. Adding value to farm products becomes imperative for rural growth by enhancing farm income and providing employment in the processing businesses. Apart from the main products, the by-products obtained from these crops have many alternative uses, thus adding to the total value of the crops. The by-products from these crops are spread in diverse sectors such as food, feed, shelter, decorative material, etc. This article focusses on the byproduct utilization of coconut, arecanut and cocoa as a source of value addition to farmers and entrepreneurs.
