- Square system – Palms are set at fixed equal distance at the corner of each square, the distance between palms in each row and the distance between adjacent rows being the same.
- Triangular system – Palms are set at fixed distance at the corners of an equilateral triangle. About 15% more palms can be accommodated per unit area under this system, and this is the most common method presently used for both coconut and oil palm.
- Rectangular system – Rows are set at right angles to one another but the distance between the palms in the row is closer than those between the rows. This system provides for a slightly lower number of palms in a stand but allows for more room for growing intercrops....
