PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Potassium nutrition in oil palm

Oil palm is the first oil-producing crop globally, representing nearly 20 million ha. In the recent past, oil palm cultivation has been controversial not only because of land utilisation at the expense of primary tropical forests or health concerns associated with palm oil, but also pollution caused by fertilisation (including CO2 produced to synthesise fertilisers).

This project is open to Honours, Masters and PhD students
