Abstract

Itnroduction

A study was conducted in Intercropping at Betel Research Station, to evaluate alternative types of supporting materials for betel (Piper betle L.) cultivation. Coir ropes were the most suitable supporting material to achieve higher yield and quality betel. The durability of coir ropes was high in comparison to other supporting materials and the use of coir ropes as a supporting material was the cheapest for betel cultivations.

Key Words: Supporting Materials; Coir ropes; Betel; Yield; Leaf Quality
