Regenerative agriculture in controlling basal stem rot disease in mature oil palm.

Presented by Dr Christina Vimala Supramaniam

Date and time: Wednesday 21st July, 10am

Learn about this study, which successfully combined natural BCA and processed waste from palm oil mill to improve current disease control methods for BSR in mature palms. The potential circular and regenerative agriculture in the cultivation of oil palm will have positive impacts on the environment, such as reducing stocks of biomass waste, reducing land use change by rejuvenating existing plantation soil, and reducing the emission of greenhouse gases by banning new plantations in peatland. By focusing on innovations in both upstream and downstream processes in the cultivation of oil palm, Malaysia could lead as the first sustainable palm oil nation.
