24 Mar Grain Corn Project Malaysia 2019
Year 2019, Famox is focusing to expand the maize project. The planting will start just before rainy season this year. Aided with machinery of our own and those provided from Kementerian Pertanian, we are going to make this project a success by targeting a minimum of 8 tonne yield per hectare. Our seed supplier agronomist has visited us last month to analyze the soil and planting method to optimize maize yield. Hopefully this year’s going to be a great year to plant maize despite the hot weather here in Kedah with so little rain. We will depend highly on the irrigation system that we installed. Below are the picture updates on the progress in one of the plot of maize (grain corn) plantation here in Famox.
Plowing, adding chicken manure, pre-emergence herbicide application, sowing, and finally, the irrigation system is up and running.
