THE PALM

             Sugar yielding Palms are known to mankind for their economic potentialities. Palm Belt in the world roughly extends from 44 degrees South latitude to 45 degrees North latitude and widely encompasses the tropical countries like Congo, India-chaina, Sri Lanka, India Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia.

             The Palm, botanically known as Palmate, has been termed the princess of the vegetable kingdom. The family of palms contains some 1,100 species, widely diffused over the globe, but they are common in the tropical countries.

             In India, there are four varieties of sugar-yielding palms Date, Coconut, Palmyrah and Sago. Their names are as follows :

             1.         The Palmyrah Palm (Borassus Flabellifermis)

             2.         The Date Palm (Phoenix Sylvestris)

             3.         The Coconut Palm (Cocos Nucifera)

             4.         Indian Sago Palm (Caryota Urens)

             It is impossible to overestimate the utility of palms. They give food, shelter, timber, fuel, building materials, sticks, fibre, paper starch, sugar, oil wax, wine, tannin, dyeing materials, resin and a host of minor products. 

            Palm trees thrive on non-agricultural lands, on the banks of streams, rivers and canals, on undulating hill slopes and sandy lands which are normally unfit for cultivation. They do not require much attention.
