Arriving at this milestone after an illustrious century, the growth from an ornamental palm to a multibillion dollar commodity crop in Malaysia has been a remarkable journey for oil palm. From its humble beginnings in Malaya as a monoculture plantation crop in 1917, it has grown to occupy over 5.7 million hectares of land space by 2016, demonstrating the impact the crop has had on the country’s economy over the last 100 years. Its importance has led to many initiatives being implemented with a…

TLDR
The area in Sumatra with a suitable climate for growing oil palm will decrease in size and the more unsuitable climate will lead to concomitant increases in basal stem rot (BSR) by Ganoderma boninense, as previously predicted, which is likely to make palm oil production unsustainable between 2050 and 2100.
Palm oil’s contribution to the United Nations sustainable development goals: outcomes of a review of socio-economic aspects
Palm oil is both the world’s most-used vegetable oil and the most criticized for its environmental impact due to the observed reduction in tropical forest areas for its cultivation over the past
Factors Affecting the Export Demand of Malaysian Palm Oil
