Land Management

Land is carefully prepared to support the growth of new palms, when the old ones are felled for replanting. During this stage, we plant legume cover crops to fix atmospheric nitrogen in the soil, reducing soil erosion and improving water retention. This will improve soil properties, increase the soil’s biological activity and supress the growth of weeds.

The company also avoids planting of oil palm on very steep slope of above 25 degrees gradient, to minimise erosion.
