Kerala May Train Monkeys to Pick Coconuts Due to Labor Shortage (PALASH R. GHOSH, February 20, 2012, IB Times)

Apparently, the Kerala Coconut Development Board (CDB) is concerned by the unwillingness of increasing numbers of low- caste men to engage in such dangerous work for such low pay. Local farmers, facing a shortage of coconut tree-climbers, are now reluctant to grow coconuts, a staple of Kerala's culture and economy.
