SUMMARY

Natural Farmland Resources Sdn Bhd is providing professional services for investment plantations in Malaysia and South East Asia. We offer a wide range of services to corporate or private investors ranging from full plantation management, technical assistance, supplying high-quality planting materials, property scouting, and assistance in crop sales.

PROBLEM

Time Consuming

Although fruit plantations bring attractive returns, many plantations require at least 3 years of planting period in which investors only see the real profit when the fully mature trees are harvested. 

Expertise Needed

Fruit plantations need a lot of expertise. Without proper maintenance like fertilization, grass cleaning, and branches cutting, fruits trees will not grow healthy and produce quality fruits.

Heavy Investment

The first few years involved heavy investment for fruit plantations. High operation expenses cause investors to invest a substantial amount of capital to start. 

Market segment.

Fruit plantations market is very focused on the type of fruits planted, for example during plantation is mainly for the durian market.
 

SOLUTION

Rapid Growth and High Yield

Bamboo is very fast growing it can offer investors returns at a much earlier stage than other plantations. 
Bamboo technically it’s not in fact a tree, it’s a grass.  It can reach its full height in just one year and reach full maturity within four. In the right conditions, its growth can surge 100cm a day!
A great advantage of bamboo is that it can grow in a wide variety of climates and soils, both in lowland and highland areas. Setting up new plantations is therefore feasible in many areas.
Bamboo is a self-regenerating natural resource. When bamboo culms are harvested, new shoots emerge and replace them in a matter of months. Compared to trees bamboo can be harvested annually. The rapid growth of bamboo means more harvests to ensure sustainable supplies.
Bamboo new shoots that emerge in the Spring will continue to get bigger and more numerous from year to year as the colony grows towards maturity
Depending on the species, bamboo plantations can remain productive for more than 50 years. Harvesting in new bamboo plantations usually begins after 5 to 7 years
