Description

REFqPCR2014001-1.jpg
  • The 'African oil palm (Elaeis guineensis)', which is grown in tropical and subtropical regions, is a highly productive oil-bearing crop.
  • The African oil palm (Elaeis guineensis), belonging to genus Elaeis in the family Arecaceae (Palmaceae), is the most productive oil- bearing crop grown in tropical and subtropical regions, accounting for 33% of vegetable oil and 45% of edible oil produced worldwide. Oil palm has a long productive life span and is frequently exposed to soil and atmospheric drought and other stresses.
  • Elaeis guineensis (E. guineensis) is the most productive oil variety that can produced 10–35 tonnes/ha of crude fruit bunch oil. It grows well in low land with humid places and tropical perennial plants which can cultivated easily in Malaysia. It is easy to get and readily available in the market. [1] [2][3].
