AA DxP Oil Palm Seeds

SIRIM & MPOB Licensed Seeds

AA DxP seeds and seedlings are licensed by SIRIM and MPOB.

Superior Pedigree Seeds

AA DxP seeds are produced from selected dura and pisifera parents derived from superior pedigrees, which are featured in the best DxP seeds produced locally and internationally.

Ulu Remis Deli duras are known for their uniform high yield and good oil extraction characteristics. La Me and Dabou Deli duras have been selected for high bunch weight, good oil extraction and short stature. In the production of AA DxP seeds, attempts are made to combine the best attributes of these pedigrees to give rise to palms with high oil yield and a small palm stature, important attributes in our increasingly scarce and costly labour market.
AA DxP pisifera parents inherit the high bunch yield characteristic of S27B, AVROS and Yangambi, the high oil extraction of AVROS and Yangambi and the short stature of the Dumpy and the Yangambi parents.

The next generation of AA pisiferas (Dy.Ybi.AVROS) will combine the best features of Dy.AVROS and Ybi.AVROS pisiferas.


Your Solution To Higher Profitability

ESIGEL is a superior product for latex stimulation based on improved formulation of ethephon prepared by Applied Agricultural Resources Sdn. Bhd.. This formulation incorporating amendments, enhances the efficiency of ethephon by early release of ethylene gas into the tree system.

Using the groove technique of application, ESIGEL was found to give a higher yield response than traditional ethephon formulations. As price of ESIGEL is competitive and comparable with traditional ethephon formulations, a yield advantage may be obtained at no extra cost.

ESIGEL is available in 2.5%, 5.0% and 10.0% ready to use formulations. Guildlines for use of ESIGEL are given in the labels. It should however be borne in mind that yield response to ESIGEL will depend on several other factors i.e type of clone, age of material, tapping system, nutritional status of the trees, etc.


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.
