PalmOilMagazine, JAKARTA - In the recent days, palm oil plantation company, PT Astra Agro Lestari Tbk., released three superior palm oil seeds. Research and development team of the company that released the seeds predicted that the seeds could produce fresh fruit bunch (FFB) about 30 tons/hectare/year with yield about 8,5 - 9 tons/hectare/year.
Director of PT Astra Agro Letari Tbk., Santosa Tarmudji said that by the finding, palm oil plantation industries would be more effective and efficient and the competition would be higher.
Besides having high yield, the varieties would be growing slower, about 40 cm/year and when the trees are 25 years old, it would be 10 meters maximal or much shorter than other varieties. “It means, the economic age could be up to 30 years because the harvest process would be possible too,” he said in Talk to The CEO 2021 which PalmOilMagazine joined.
