Pineapples in coconut lands
Pineapple cultivation is to be commenced on a large scale on coconut
lands in Kurunegala and Puttalam districts, according to a scheme to be
worked out by the NWP agriculture ministry.
This would increase income from coconut land and help provide more
employment and income to unemployed villagers. This industry can bring a
return of over twenty times the investment in three years, the NWP
agriculture ministry sources said.
