Rain, Please Come.
Alhamdulillah thanks God, finally after a month of dry the rain came on Thursday, 12 feb. Eventhough it was only 2ml of rain, but at least it was water. But, if there's is more rain to come, we could expect a surge in FFB production, due to higher no of bunches with above 5 fruit detached. . Dry period, actually slowing the process of ripening oil palm bunches. But, once ripened, this bunches contain an optimum oil content , thus improved the Oil Extraction Rate (OER) at the mill. One could expect the OER should be around 21-22%, thus giving higher return of revenue from each tonne of Fresh Fruits Bunches.
