CPCRI say that systematically laid out experiments are being conducted in these locations that represent different coconut growing agro-ecological units.

The locations are Cheruthazham in Kannur, Mayyanad in Kollam, Chettikkulangara in Alappuzha, Thelliyoor in Pathanamthitta, Mookkannoor in Ernakulam, and Naduvannoor in Kozhikode.
