Another Labour Saving Innovation for Practical Planters
Do you have a large replant and have difficulty in keeping up with your circle weeding and frequent manuring rounds in your immature oil palm areas? If you have, AA MULCH™ will help you to:
  • Reduce circle weeding for the first 18-24 months, therebysaving on labour and materials
  • Save on fertilizer application as one application lasts up to 14 months* (Similar to application of slow release fertilizers)
  • Reduce fertilizer loss
  • Avoid chemical phytotoxicity and scorching of palm leaves, resulting in better palm growth and high early yields

* Depends on soil type and rainfall

AA MULCH™ can also help you to:

  • Conserve soil moisture
  • Obtain better growth especially in areas with extreme climate eg. very low or very high rainfall
  • Give better growth than EFB mulching on poor shallow soils such as lateritic and very sandy areas
AA MULCH™ (Malaysian patent and trademark pending) is a specially designed modified polythene sheet used in a system of mulching oil palm to minimise circle weeding and frequent fertilizer application.
