SOPPOA, MPOB to initiate research
KUCHING: The Sarawak Oil Palm Plantation Owners Association (SOPPOA) will collaborate with the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB), to conduct research on ganoderma, its secretary Philip Ho said.
He said SOPPOA would provide the infrastructure while MPOB had the funds and expertise in terms of planters and researchers, to share information on the disease while tackling its spread.
“We are always working closely with the MPOB and other related bodies to benefit the industry as a whole, particularly in addressing the spread of ganoderma in Sarawak, which is not alarming at the moment and can be managed,” he told Bernama yesterday. - Bernama
