Woof supplement within calcium fat from PFAD; MDAG for healthy food materials in palm oil; bio-silica fertilizer so that palm oil tree is dry resistant; fast sortir and grading to get fresh fruit bunch within spectral image.
“The results to be promoted for the investors are in technology readiness level (TRL) 7. It means, they are ready to be in commercial but they are not in the form of products,” he said in his official statement.
