Wild Asia promotes common oil palm best management practices and natural farming methods through a method called ‘bio-intensive agriculture’. It is the intensive application of the understanding of natural biological processes to create ways to enhance the natural biology of soils, and in so doing, improves the soil health to sustain production. Plants grown under this regime are in general healthier, more resistant to disease and pest attack, and provide better quality products. The methods applied are not novel in any case, but are derived from natural farming and regenerative agriculture practitioners from around the world. They share a common theme, which is the minimizing of soil disturbances, building up of carbon in soils, and reducing the dependency of chemical-based inputs.
Together with reNature, Wild Asia is now planning to pilot Regenerative Agroforestry on their oil palm plots with the aim to increase the diversity of species, as well as, income sources.
