Clinical Studies

CLINICAL DATA OF COCONUT WATER ON TOMATO PLANTS:
“CW gave maximum growth stimulation without toxicity to the root tissue”
“It is now well established that coconut water(CW), the liquid endosperm of Cocosnucifera L., acts as a potent stimulus to the growth and development of plant tissue”
“It is necessary for the growth of many callus tissues and has been shown to enhance the growth of many other types of tissues”
El Hinnawy, E., Stegwe, D. (1970). The Growth Responses of Exercised Tomato Roots to Coconut Water. University of Amsterdam. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjcnd3KluvwAhWFIbcAHV3YBww4KBAWegQIERAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fnatuurtijdschriften.nl%2Fpub%2F539731%2FABN1970019006007.pdf&usg=AOvVaw0MK8Cn3f22vs5G4P5H5EoT

In a study by Laguna National Institute of Biotechnology, the average shoot weight of tomato seedlings treated with coconut water was almost doubled and root mass was almost tripled in comparison to the control plants:
Average shoot weight increased by 92%:
Coconut water applied: 6.53g
No coconut water applied: 3.3g
Average root weight increased by 169%
Coconut water applied: 1.43g
No coconut water applied: 0.53g
“Root development in terms of calcium nitrate absorbed by the roots was significantly higher for the treated plants than the control.”

CLINICAL DATA OF COCONUT WATER ON PERIWINKLE PLANTS:
“The plant growth hormones present in coconut water … can be used instead of synthetic plant growth regulators (PGRs) in MS media for micropropagation of Catharanthus roseus”
“Therefore, fresh coconut water extracted from coconut fruit can be used instead of synthetic plant growth regulators (PGR) in tissue culture of Catharanthus roseus and further research is needed to test its efficacy against micropropagation of other medicinal plants as a cost effective substitute for expensive synthetic plant growth hormones"

CLINICAL DATA OF COCONUT WATER ON BANANA PLANTS:
"The results indicated that, plant height, girth, leaf number and total leaf area of plantlets obtained from suckers treated with coconut water from fully matured dried fruits was significantly higher than that derived from suckers treated with distilled water and liquid endosperm formation stage. Plantlets generated from suckers treated with coconut water of all the different stages were bigger than that obtained from the distilled water treatment"

CLINICAL DATA OF COCONUT WATER ON BRASSICA PLANTS:
"Results of the experiment revealed that formulated coconut water could be used as alternative fertilizer. The following were observed: (1) The formulated coconut water is comparable to the commercial liquid fertilizer based on the physico-chemical tests conducted; (2) Formulated coconut water is as effective as the commercial liquid fertilizer in terms of its effect on height, fresh weight, and number of leaves of pechay; (3) Commercial liquid fertilizer and formulated coconut water are almost comparable in terms of their effects on soil pH, soil organic matter, and soil available phosphorus. On the contrary, the effect of formulated coconut water on soil exchangeable K is greater than commercial liquid fertilizer which make it a very good source of K for growing plants and for soil deficient in soil K; (4) The formulated coconut water fertilizer cost less and it is as effective as commercial liquid fertilizer."
