Then the people would have palm oil plantation with high productivity, cut off plantations’ productivity gap between the smallholders and companies that happened for all these years.

The approach would be completed with off taker system or development from the company to smallholders during SRP runs. The second, one realization of the system is cash for works for smallholders as the partners. It means, the smallholders still get income during SRP runs.

The third, we from PalmCo also offer superior (certified) palm oil seeds for smallholders. It is undeniable that many illegal palm oil seeds haunted smallholders in SRP. The facts showed that the seeds would determine the next 25 – 30 years,” Jatmiko said, as quoted from the official page of PTPN V, Friday (15/12/2023).
