The Plantation Division is principally invloved in the ownership and management of oil palm plantations, cultivation of oil palm and harvesting of its fresh fruit bunches and the production and sales of crude palm oil and palm kernel. The Group’s plantation operations are carried out by Boustead Plantations Berhad (BPB) and its subsidiaries and associates.
Taking the lead in estate management
The Group’s plantation assets are managed by Boustead Estates Agency Sdn. Bhd. (BEA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Boustead Holdings Berhad. BEA manages a total of approximately 93,300 hectares of agricultural land, of which about 75,000 hectares are planted with oil palm.
The principal activity of BEA comprises the provision of management services to plantations estates and palm oil mills, mainly to the BPB Group.
Utilising advanced technologies to stay ahead, BEA, via its associate company, Applied Agricultural Resources Sdn. Bhd. (AAR) also provides agricultural research and advisory services.
Additionally, AAR’s brand new and state-of-the-art oil palm tissue culture lab is leading the way globally in the tissue culture clonal propagation of oil palm. The laboratory, situated in Ijok, Selangor, is the first and largest of its kind in the world and possibly boasts the largest area of clonal planting globally.
Our Molecular Laboratory known as the AAR-UNMC Biotechnology Research Centre (BRC) was opened on 29 September 2009. The BRC is located adjacent to the University of Nottingham Malaysia, Semenyih. The overall and primary goal of the AAR biotechnology unit is to develop biotechnological tools that are rapid, sensitive and reliable to support and compliment our crop, improvement and agronomic research programme, which encompass oil palm breeding, tissue culture, pest and diseases and agronomy.
Going beyond for future growth
The Group’s Plantation Division continues to move forward to enhance growth by tapping prospects locally and abroad.
