The company export has concluded that germinated seeds from Costa Rica are more suitable to the soil conditions in Cambodia. It can resist diseases and drought, and the climate of the two countries follows similar patterns.  However, The export has decided to plant approximately 200-300 hectares of Malaysia's germinated seeds, for research and record purposes only: to evaluate which of the seeds produces more bunches.  The greatest year of all was 2002 when the Company finally put its CPO mill on operation after 10 months of construction and installation.
