There are upstream to downstream for plantation companies to venture into, from planting the seed, harvesting it, logistics of sending those harvested products to the mill for further processing or transporting out from the factory to distribution dealer or end-user (usually it will go through dealer or retailer to achieve better service too). The plantation is crucial to the market, ranging from paddy field for rice and other grain as the basis of the food pyramid of human consumption to sugarcane and tea plantations for any other related industries (such as the food and beverage sector that require these two raw products). Sugar is a critical element for many food and beverage processing plants to carry out their manufacturing and sugarcane plantation is the one contributing factor. Packaged drink or soft drink production lines are some of the examples while tea leaf and coffee beans are the main material for retailers to package it as a set to make any caffeinated drinks in their restaurants, bistro and cafe. There are challenges when the supply chain is interrupted, therefore, it is crucial to make the plantation method and process flow more effective and efficient. For example, if you want to enhance the yield of certain crops, how to balance between the ways including fertilizer, pesticide, herbicide, insecticide and more.
Having organic methods to do farming can be very good in building your brand image but then, it is very labour-intensive and its business at a bigger scale level will be highly correlated or known as sensitive to economic decline, requesting more of the proper planning, as well as any development in chemicals used in agricultural, has nothing to do with or benefitting the organic farm owners. However, it is more sustainable, efficient, environmentally friendly and also less susceptible to financial and natural risks. There are a few principles that organic farming holds, from fairness, ecology, health and care. There are many methods for such cultivation, from soil management, crop rotation, compost, integrated organic farming, pure organic farming, green manure, and crop diversity to including pest control biologically, cover cropping, and reduced tillage. Last but not least, soil tillage reduction has a meaning of soil not being inverted or exposed to air, making less carbon lost to the atmosphere, creating better soil organic carbon. Decreasing nitrate leaching into surface water as well as into groundwater, recycling the wastes of animals back to the farm, erosion to soil is reduced and subsequently healthier to human beings.
There are many improvements to the plantation that can be done, and the types of plantation can be ranging from oil palm, flower, potato, rubber tree, speciality timber species, cashew, cocoa, coconut, areca nut, fruit, oil seed, sisal, cotton, opium and more. These are those popular ones that shall be focused with much attention since global food chains are highly affected by the yield. In order to reach the hunger-field target globally quickly, we must not lose the enthusiasm to build from a sketch in a lot of time since much research and development (R&D) would have been given up if the persistence is not there or not even strong enough to sustain for the good results to arrive. There are many organizations in the world that help in this aspect and most of them are non-profit or government enterprises to make food supply more effective, efficient and sustainable. Even those companies that claim they are in a profit centre or publicly listed that have plenty of shareholders to report to, should also contribute a portion of their revenue to invest. Investment in ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) technology should be careful enough to make sure it is not for the public-show, authority or tax department, but to really make plantations improved in such a way can help the country or worldwide.
