The Oil Palm Plantation

Gallery Two welcomes you into a real oil palm estate; accompanied by exciting sound effects similar to what you hear in a typical plantation... chirping of the birds, mooing of the cattle against the burring sound of agricultural machinery at work.

You will be introduced to the Motorcycle Trailer and Mechanical Harvesting Pole, a machine designed by MPOB to harvest oil palm fruits. A video on harvesting technology focussing on the MPOB-patented aluminium harvesting pole; Zirafah, complements the machine on display.

Along the way, you can do more than just look at various species of oil palm fruits - Pisifera, Dura, Tenera, etc. The Golden Yellow Belt of Palm-based products makes its debut here, beginning with herbicides, weedicides etc.

You can now continue to observe actual plantation activities located outside the building through a telescope. See the animal behaviour, watch the barn owl catching its prey, manifesting the predator-pest relations.

The touch screen information kiosk, offers information on various technologies and mechanisms used in the fields to apply fertilizers, harvest, collect fruits, control weeds, etc.

Moving on to your right, you will be presented with a summary of other facts regarding the following topics:

    Plantation Management
    Plant Nutrition
    Crop Protection
    Harvesting

Harvesting Quality palm oil starts in the field!
