The trends generally agreed for the future of palm oil as an important commodity are the combination of a demand for food that will double over the next 20 years, the emergence of new uses as a renewable energy source, and (until the recent price exuberance over biodiesel) the falling price trend of palm oil in real terms on the world market. For more than 30 years, the average crop yield of the land under exploitation in the world does not exceed 3 t ha -1 yr -1 . The boom in availability of… 
Intensification of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) plantation efficiency through planting material: New results and developments
Indonesia recently pledged to become a major global food producer by boosting the production of food commodities. Palm oil is one of the 10 strategic and key commodities that are part of the
Urgency to accelerate replanting of Indonesian oil palm: A review of the role of seed institutions
The achievement of expanding the area and volume of Indonesian palm oil production does not in line with the productivity. The productivity of Indonesian oil palm is inseparable from the age of the
Networking and Innovation in the Malaysian Palm Oil Industry : Past, Present and Future
This article encourages leaders in the oil palm and palm oil industry to think deeply about networking, and to form both informal and formal networking groups so that more innovation can be achieved.


A note on the long-term palm oil yield trend.
National data for Malaysia on annual palm oil yields per hectare were re-examined in the light of their apparent lack of improvement over the last few decades. Published yields were compared to
Scientific research for sustainable palm oil production
Oil palm growing began tentatively less than a century ago (circa 1910). Up to 1960 the palm oil consumed came from a few tens of thousands of hectares of estate plantations (Indonesia: 110 000 ha in
Indonesian oil palm competitiveness : PT. Socfindo as a private sector example
PT. Socfindo is a long established, foreign owned, plantation company with operations in North Sumatra and Aceh. This paper provides a brief review of the background situation to the Indonesian Oil
Varietal diffusion of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.).
Genetic improvement of the oil palm has been through several major stages. Mass selection was carried out before World War I. Around 1955, heterosis was found in crosses between selections carried
Breeding for sustainable high yielding oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) at PT Socfindo
Sustainable high yielding oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) breeding by P.T. Socfin Indonesia Medan is based on a Recurrent Reciprocal Scheme (RRS). Along with Cirad as team-mate, this scheme is

It is now recognized that the contribution of dietary fats to blood lipids and cholesterol modulation is a consequence of the digestion, absorption, and metabolism of the fats.
Assessment and utilizing sources of resistance to Fusarium wilt in oil plam (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) Genetic resources
On a world scale, oil palm is in the process of becoming the main source of vegetable oil. Its cultivation is of vital importance for populations in West and Central Africa. However, vascular wilt, a
Characterization of parameters for the development of an early screening test for basal stem rot tolerance in oil palm progenies
Preliminary results seemed to show that it was possible to distinguish the degree of susceptibility of progenies inoculated artificially at the germinated seed stage or when transferred to polybags, suggesting that the level of resistance was conserved irrespective of the physiological stage used for screening in the nursery.
Possible sources of genetic resistance in oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) to basal stem rot caused by Ganoderma boninense – prospects for future breeding
Differences in susceptibility to the disease have been detected within the two Elaeis species, guineensis and oleifera, and material of Deli origin is highly susceptible compared to material of African origin.
