There are opportunities for growth in the coconut industry, but policies are needed to support and maintain the sector.

That's the belief of executive director of the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute, Barton Clarke.

Meanwhile Chief Agricultural Officer Lennox Chandler says a shipment of seedlings is expected to arrive soon.

But, these trees can take up to five years to bear fruit.

He is therefore suggesting also planting other crops in the meantime.
