salt for coconuts

This is an interesting topic. Purified mined salt and sea water are not the same thing. Sea water is sometimes used in a diluted form as a method to remineralize soil. It contains many minor minerals that can be in short supply in inland soils.

Years ago it was considered that coconuts could resist high salt in the soil, but they did not need additional salt. Regular crops not only can resist some salt they may benefit greatly from limited applications of sea water or unpurified sea salt because of a lack of one or more minor minerals.

That coconuts need salt as a fertilizer to supply needed chlorine does not sound right. I think more research work is needed here.
