The CDM software (Coconut Data Management) from Cirad



CDM (Coconut Data Management) is a software intended to manage experimental data observed on collections or experimental fields of coconut over a long period following a regular schedule. It is based on the STANTECH manual which describes the organization of field planting, data gathering, and data analysis, along with the characters to be observed. Data management is made for every palm planted in the fields. Version 3 is able to manage the database containing these palms with their identification characters, along with data concerning immature vegetative observations, leaf morphology, stem measurements, flowering dates, inflorescence morphology, fruit and bunch return, fruit component analyses, and state of the palms. As the location of every palm in the field is recorded in the database, it is possible to draw maps of the fields with geographical representation of characters. Observations are dated with year and month and it is possible to record one value per character and per month. It is possible to execute powerful queries on the database, to export data into external files, and to make statistical analysis of widely used designs.

Some pictures of varieties in the National Coconut Genebank of Vietnam

A very rare coconut palm with stripped fruits was observed in Dong Go. It seems to be a Brown Dwarf type, and as far as we know, this is the first time that such a characteristics is described for a Dwarf type.
Is is not yet evident that this characteristic is genetically transmissible. So there is a great interest in trying to multiply this kind of coconut palm, as it could be strongly appreciated for landscaping purposes. Researchers said they had three coconut palms with stripped fruits in Dong Go.



Except in Dong go, we only saw stripped coconut once in Tonga island, but it was a Tall type with stripped fruits, not a dwarf type. Such a Tall-type was also described in Vanuatu.
