Palm Oil – Cow Integrated Program – Not Main Cause to Ganoderma

InfoSAWIT, BOGOR – Chairman of Masyarakat Perkelapasawitan Indonesia (MAKSI), the institution for palm oil researchers and academy in University of Indonesia, Darmono Taniwiryono supported palm oil – cow integrated program in palm oil plantation in national scale.

He was once worried if the program would spread Ganoderma fungus. But when he did survey of Ganoderma, many palm oil plantations that did not implement palm oil – cow integrated program were full of Ganoderma and they even got worse.

“I believe, the program would deliver advantages for palm oil plantations, namely if the cows are in shelters. This could minimize Ganoderma to be developing if the planters breed their cows well,” Darmono said, as in the official statement to InfoSAWIT recently.

He also mentiond, there will be much organic fertilizer in palm oil areas which is useful because fertilizer is expensive now. “In addition, the organic fertilizer could be antagonist for Ganoderma,” Darmono said. (T2)
