“When we discussed about downstream (sectors), our palm oil is the number one. In the upstream, which is, in seeds, Indonesia is the leader in the world,” Dwi said in a discussion about the 2024 palm oil seeds online which was conducted by Gamal Institute by the early of February 2024 that Palmoilmagazine.com monitored.

Dwi Asmono predicted, the needs of palm oil seeds would be increasing as the population keeps growing in the world. The other factor that has something to do with palm oil needs, is that, other vegetable oils got decreasing supply, such as, sunflower oil because of drought and geopolitics in Ukraine.

But it needs special attention in palm oil seed planting for the smallholders. The massive distribution of fake/illegal palm oil seeds needs serious attention. (T2)
