Research

Palm Neera is being fully utilised and converted as value added product of Palm Candy by traditional method which takes nearly 45 days to form candy crystals with low yield.  Due to research conducted by Anna University it has been reduced to 25 days to form crystals with good quality and increased yield of palm candy.  The technical know-how of the improved method in the production of palm candy has been provided to the palmgur artisans. 

Research on preservation of Palmyrah Nungu and Palmyrah Fruit Jam has been completed and the technical know-how has been provided to the Tamil Nadu State Palmgur and Fibre Marketing Cooperative Federation.  This would create awareness among the Self-Help Groups and other individuals interested in Palm Products Industry to produce and market these products.
