  Copra farming
The flowering of the coconut palm results in drupes, which are green fruit growing in bunches of 5 or 6 in the axils of the tree: each fruit in turn contains 5 or 6 nuts.
Under the husk, there is a very hard, thin brown kernel containing the albumen, a milky white liquid known as coconut milk, which is transformed into flesh as the fruit matures.
The copra is placed in bags, which are weighed before being sold and shipped to Papeete, the home of the "Huilerie de Tahiti", the Tahiti oil manufacturing company.

 Copra
Copra is the cut, dried endosperm (nutritive tissue) of the coconut, fruit of the coconut palm from the palm family (Palmae).
According to [11], limited amounts of copra may be shipped in ISO containers, in which case, however, the stowage position on board must be carefully selected so as to minimize the possibility of self-heating and to allow access to the container in the case of a cargo fire.
Copra must be protected from all forms of moisture (seawater, rain and condensation water), since moisture promotes hydrolytic/enzymatic fat cleavage, which then results in self-heating due to increased respiration.

Controlled drying and storage trials showed conclusively that direct smoke drying protected copra from aflatoxin contamination: copra only needed to be dried to a moisture content of £16% to store safely, whereas hot-air dried or sun-dried copra needed to be dried uniformly to £12% to prevent aflatoxin contamination.
It is considered GMP for Primary traders to purchase grade 1 copra, and keep it separate from lower grade copra.
Procurement of Grade 1 copra is essential to produce copra by-products containing acceptable levels of aflatoxin, and this is considered to be GMP.

 COMMISSION FOR AGRICULTURAL COSTS AND PRICES
However, no estimates of copra production, or indeed even of overall copra arrivals, are available for the current year in the absence of an adequate statistical system to collect the necessary data.
The domestic prices of copra and coconut oil during the current year have been about 80 per cent and 60 per cent higher than their respective international prices, and even the current MSP for copra is about 50 per cent higher than the international price.
For instance, the estimates provided by the Government of Kerala for processing of copra assumes that 685 nuts are required to produce one quintal of milling copra and that a sum of Rs 420 is required for processing these nuts into copra.
