InfoSAWIT, Nusa Dua –The research result done by Universitas Jambi showed that the sustainable practices increase the productivity.
Lecturer of Universitas Jambi, Rosyani, said, before doing research about palm oil practices done by the smallholders, she had made inventory of issues. Basically the smallholders face some problems, such as, the first, financial; the second, organizations of the smallholders; the third, lack of information about the right cultivation technic; the fourth, capacity of the smallholders; and the fifth, the internal issue among themselves.
If everything could be solved, she hoped, the smallholders could develop well. “They need development to implement cultivation, financial helps, and capacity enhancement,” she said in her exposure in the International Conference on Oil Palm and Environment (ICOPE) 2018, where InfoSAWIT also attended,Thursday (26/4/2018) in Nusa Dua, Bali.
