PUBLICATION | OIL PALM SERIES

Ian Rankine has co-authored a series of Field Handbooks for Oil Palm Farm Management.   First released in 1999, Ian has been working on Series Two which will be printed in 2018.

“Meticulous attention to detail in nursery and plantation development, and field management, as well as scrupulous care in the use of resources (land, labour, equipment and materials), is required if potential profitability is to be achieved in the present economic conditions. The pace of change today means that managers have to gain and implement knowledge to achieve best planting practices much more rapidly than ever before.”

“The Oil Palm Series draws on the wealth of experience and knowledge available and has been designed to contain all the essential information for each aspect of management in a clear, consistent and user-friendly layout. Each job is clearly described in terms of objective, standard, equipment and materials, frequency, timing and task applicable for each task.”
