Coconut Milk - Horticulture

Horticulture

In 1943, Johannes van Overbeek discovered that coconut milk actively encourages plant growth. This was later discovered to be due to a number of factors, but predominantly the existence in the milk of a cytokinin known as zeatin. It does not speed up growth in some plants such as radishes. The addition of 10% coconut milk to the substrate in which wheat is grown has shown substantial improvements in yield.
