Distributing tailored 'Farm Business Plans' to palm fruit farmers in east Malaysia
GeoTraceability is installing a software system which, at the click of a button, will generate tailored Farm Business Plans for hundreds of Palm Fruit Producers in Sabah, East Malaysia.
Using GeoTraceability’s tools, data on farm conditions, producer farm practices and the surrounding environment - collected on behalf of Wilmar by Wild Asia - will be used to generate Individual Farm Business Plans.
These Individual Farm Business Plans will include an accurate measure of the producer’s farm, tailored recommendations for agricultural practices to be carried out on his/her field, a schedule for activities, a list of necessary inputs required, a production forecast and budget for the planned period.
The project, initiated and funded by Wilmar, also uses a traceability system to record the origin of fresh fruit bunches entering into their supply chain. This system provides a way for Wilmar to improve visibility of their palm oil supply chains and connect customers to their product’s origins.
