Sarawak Palm Oil Industry Set For Major Expansion

Sarawak's plans to double the amount of land earmarked for oil palm plantations will act as a key driver for the state's economic development, says Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu, Deputy Chief Minister and also state Minister of Modernisation of Agriculture and Minister of Rural Development.

Global publishing, research and consultancy firm, Oxford Business Group (OBG), quoted Jabu as saying this during an exclusive interview with OBG.

Jabu had said that the initiative, giving strong emphasis for oil palm estate plantation development was part of a major expansion programme earmarked for the industry.

The plans would see the amount of land allocated to the palm oil industry increased to two million hectares, placing the industry firmly at the heart of Sarawak's agricultural development.

OBG said the full interview with Jabu will appear in its forthcoming guide, The Report: Sarawak 2011. On another note, Jabu said Indonesia's move to expand its own palm oil industry had exacerbated labour shortages across the agricultural sector. — Bernama
Palm Oil Industry Outlook Bright

With production of soy bean in South America expected to be down by three to five per cent this year due to adverse weather conditions, the situation would benefit palm oil in terms of demand and price.

"In addition, the political unrest in the Middle East has caused uncertainty over crude oil supply that spiked the price above US$100 per barrel. This scenario, barring any worsening in the Iranian nuclear crisis, has led to the prediction set by the international palm oil industry analysts." In the longer term, the demand for palm oil and other oil seeds would be driven by increase in population and economic growth.

Masing said world population had grown four times over the last century to seven billion in 2011. By 2050, this would reach 9.3 billion, which means an extra 150 million tonnes of vegetable oil had to be produced.

However, he mentioned that land would be a shrinking resource. At current yield of 4.1 tonnes of crude palm oil (CPO) per hectares, oil palm is nine times more productive than rapessed.

"Therefore, there is indeed a vast opportunity for enhanced demand for palm oil in the coming years."

In addition, Masing revealed that areas planted with oil palm in the state had increased by 22.5 per cent to 1,183,627 hectares as of Dec 31, 2011.

He added that the increment was largely due to the confidence and resolve shown by Sarawak Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority (Salcra), Felcra Bhd and smallholders in opening up new land with oil palm.

"Over the past five years, the cultivation of oil palm has grown at an average of 14.5 per cent annually. I strongly believe that if this growth momentum is maintained for the next five to eight years, the state will achieve its target of two million hectares of oil palm oil by 2020."

The number of palm oil mills in operation in the state had increased from 53 as of Dec 31, 2011 to 55 currently, with another 14 new mills at various stages of construction. In addition, nine applications to set up new palm oil mills were being evaluated.

Masing said he believed with all these existing and upcoming new mills, problems encountered by oil palm estates, in particular the smallholders, in selling their Fresh Fruit Bunch (FFB) would be alleviated. – Borneo Post
