Synergising Productivity Impacts from Oil Palm-Ruminants Silvopastoral Systems: The Unfinished Agenda
This book announcement was provided by Dr. C. Devendra, IGA`s Country Representative for Malaysia. This is Dr. Devendra’s 24th book. We wish to extend our congratulations to him. His passion for writing, combined with his deep dedication to the science of animal production systems in the developing world, has produced many impeccable books.
The oil palm ranks supreme among tree crops (coconut, cashew, citrus and rubber). Today, the Malaysian palm oil industry is remarkable in one of the most highly organized sectors of any national agricultural research (NARS) system in the world. In Malaysia, oil palm is referred as “the golden crop.”
This book was launched by the Minister of Primary Industries and Commodities on January 10th on the 100th year anniversary of the commercialization of the palm oil industry in Malaysia. The reference to “The unfinished agenda” emphasizes shared ideals and major opportunities for potential increased productivity in integrated animal-agriculture, mainly cattle and goats.
The International Goat Association promotes goat research and development for the benefit of humankind, to alleviate poverty, to promote prosperity and to improve the quality of life.
