JERAMI INDAH SDN BHD
Incorporated in 1996, Jerami Indah Sdn. Bhd. is involved in agriculture-based activities, the core of which is oil palm plantation management. With the objective of capitalizing on readily available resources from such plantation, we incorporate other complimentary activities including sheep and goat rearing, cash crop cultivation and compost processing and agro-based product sale and retailing.
Jerami Indah adopts the integrated farming method that is encompassed within the double avenue planting system, as recommended by the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) as part of a government program to promote crop and animal integration within a smallholder oil palm plantation.
A special feature of Jerami Indah oil palm plantation is in the palm rows arrangement, where palm rows are alternately spaced at 8.5 meters and 15 meters. With this arrangement, agro-based facilities are integrated within the palm plantation such as Napier grass plot, cash crop plots, goat and sheep shed, livestock grazing plot, composting facility, petting zoo, plant nursery, workers’ quarters and also a retail shop.
Recognising their importance, service roads are a standard feature of Jerami Indah oil palm plantation. These roads ensure ease of access and movements connected with the plantation and the integrated activities such as palm fruit harvesting, plantation maintenance and animal feed delivery.
