Oil Palm Fertigation - Malaysia
Most people will agree that if we can apply the annual allocation of fertilisers at daily dosages to individual palms, we can expect a substantial improvement in yields. The method adopted has to be cost effective and also be less dependent on labour. As far as we know, there is virtually no satisfactory system operating in Malaysia.
At Autopot® Systems, we believed the Smart-Dripper System we developed was able to do just that - slowly deliver nutrient to the palms via a very slow drip. Two 25 acre pilot projects had been commissioned with two large oil palm plantations.
