The partnership experience in the past cycle of oil palm planting is a strong consideration for the management of KUD Manunggal Jaya in Merlung, Jambi to continue their cooperation with Asian Agri in managing their oil palm plantations.
“We have gained the benefits of partnering with Asian Agri through the first generation of oil palm plants. Now, we are continuing our partnership for second generation crops. We hope that the productivity of this second generation of plants will be better than before," said the Chairman of Manunggal Jaya Cooperative, Muhtar.
