Palm Oil Mill Effluent Management - Empty Fruit Bunch and POME
Palm Oil Mills produce large amounts of Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) and Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME). We apply these waste to the fields. These effluents are organic in nature containing Macro and micro nutrients which enriches the soil.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
IPM, is about controlling Plant Destructing Organisms with an ecological approach. Turnera Subulata, Antigonon Leptopus and Cassia Cabanensis are Beneficial Plants which attract predators of Nettle caterpillars and bagworms. Tyto Alba (Barn Owl) - Predates on rats.
