Cultivation of oil palm

TH Group Berhad has progressed over the years from doing contracting work in land clearing and timber extraction in the early days to being a full fledge plantation company with a planted area of 11,469 hectares and a 90 metric tonne palm oil mill.

Our main plantations and the oil mill occupy one (1) continuous block in the Kinabatangan District about 120km from Sandakan and /or 70km from Lahad Datu.

There growth potential in the plantations is inherent in its age profile without additional investment on capital. Out of the total planted areas, old palms ( age 17 to 23 years old ) make up of seven percent (7%) , prime age palms ( 8-16 years of planting ) eighty –eight percent (88%) while young palms ( 2.5 to 16 years of planting) make up the rest.

The higher than average oil palm yield profile and the good infrastructure network in the plantations give the Group a competitive advantage while systematic control measures goes a long way to ensure cost and operation efficiency of the plantation.
