French R&D labs have collaborated with Asia based Oil Palm Industry Experts since 2020. Three of Palm Oil Industry most pressing issues have now been addressed.
1. A faster harvester to address Manpower Shortage in Oil Palm Plantations
2. A solution to address Poor Pollination in Oil Palm Plantations
3. The delivery of proper Biodiversity Monitoring in Oil Palm Plantations
The oil palm industry is a vital producer of edible oils, without which it would be difficult to meet the world demand.
Approximately 19 million hectares are dedicated to oil palm cultivation globally (out of 300 million hectares of total oil crop production),
Yet this 6% of land produces 36% of the vegetable oil in the world.
This industry is crucial to sustain the economies of Malaysia & Indonesia and many countries in Africa and Latin America.
It is a key element of development for hundreds of thousands small-holders 5° above and under the equator.
Much more remains to be done to improve the economic, social & environmental issues of this commodity.
Hence why Palm INNOV multidisciplinary team of experts got together with French labs to address the 3 issues mentioned.
Stay tuned for our upcoming post about our initiatives.
