THE SEED RESEARCH FOCUSES TO INCREASE THE YIELD

ANG BOON BENG, A SENIOR RESEARCHER IN PALM OIL PLANTATION FOR TENS OF YEARS ALWAYS FOCUSES TO PALM OIL SEEDS. HE THOUGHT, THE FAKE SEEDS IN THE SOCIETY SHOULD BE NO MORE. THAT IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE SMALLHOLDERS TO PLANT SUPERIOR SEEDS TO INCREASE THE BETTER LIVES.

.His concern to the smallholders’ fate who planted fake seeds has always been told by the national palm oil plantation observers. The fake seeds planted by the smallholders become the future polemic for the productivity would never been better. It always fails to harvest.

This makes them have no choice besides buying cheap seeds.

Besides the socialization, it needs to inform the superior seeds. The superior seeds have progress compared to years before. It means that the option to plant superior seeds could be adjusted to the area condition.
