Best Management Practice for Crop Nutrition of Mature Oil Palm

IPNI-2012-SEAP-5

There are substantial opportunities to increase yield and profitability on existing land through implementation of Best Management Practice (BMP) in oil palm estates. However, plantations are challenged with the identification and implementation of suitable BMP that would promise greatest financial gain. The IPNI Southeast Asia Program (IPNI SEAP, http://seap. ipni. Read more

Interpretive Summary

This project's objective is to implement, test and refine the Best Management Practice (BMP) concept specifically for fertilization and nutrition approaches for yield intensification in order to increase productivity, profitability and sustainability of palm oil production in mature oil palm plantations. The ultimate goal will be to enable the use of BMPs for nutrient management to become standard within the industry.

This project was implemented between 2011 and 2015 in one plantation in Kalimantan, Indonesia. The objective is to implement, test and refine the Best Management Practice (BMP) fertilization concept for yield intensification in order to increase productivity, profitability and sustainability of palm oil production in mature oil palm plantations. The ultimate goal will be to enable the use of BMPs for nutrient management to become standard within the industry.
