Accelerating Oil Palm Mechanisation in Malaysia : Innovations And Adaptations

Accelerating Oil Palm Mechanisation in Malaysia : Innovations And Adaptations

Mechanisation is the process of changing from working manually to the utilisation of machinery. In the agricultural sector, machinery plays an integral part of modern agriculture and farming systems. Worldwide, this sector is facing enormous challengers which sustainable land use, energy, water and extreme climate. Therefore, there should be continuous innovations in the development of agriculture machines which should meet these challenges. In the last decade, we have seen many agriculture machines development for other crops that have been modified to suit the oil palm environment.

This book presents some milestones of innovations in the oil palm mechanisation development by the industry and MPOB. Various technologies and its implementations to enhance field operations are presented in the respective chapters. It is hoped that this book will assist readers in the field of agriculture and technology development for oil palm mechanisation. Efficient, for the sustainable development of the oil palm industry.
