The awareness of sustainable oil palm planters, both smallholders and companies, changes the perspective of plantation management to not only plant oil palm and harvest fresh fruit bunches (FFB), but also to manage it with the principles of environmental friendly and QPC (quality, productivity and cost).
This was conveyed by Director of Sustainability & Stakeholder Relations Asian Agri at the National Seminar held by University of Jambi through a digital discussion titled: “Synergy of Production, Ecological and Social Functions in Sustainable Land Management”.
