Asia Plantation Capital is pleased to announce Phase 1 of a commercial collaboration in India with the country’s biggest, public sector, agarwood plantation group-a community based job, extendingacross the whole of Southern India.
The company has actually grown, andhasnow established over 5,000 grower plantations throughout South India; accounting forabout 99 % of agarwood trees currently in South India. In the prime plantation zone at Sringeri, in Karnataka, the business has developed an old-model plantation system, an agriculture research station, an artificial-inoculummultiplying unit, warehousing and a packing and forwarding centre.
After visits by Dharmendra Kumar-the creator of Vanadurgi-to Thailand, andtoother countries in South East Asia, to study and establish relationships with other office agarwood plantations, Asia Plantation Capital is happy that the group havechosen Asia Plantation Capital to work with them on establishing inoculation solutions and the end-processing of agarwood into all the different (and increasing) products it can offer.During early July, a group from Asia Plantation Capital’s Specialist Inoculation and Research Department performed field trials in India to examine the best inoculation systems-based on our experience in improving a system in Thailand and Malaysia which has a 100 % success rate in stimulating the production of agarwood resin, and which is 100 % organic; equivalent to oud oils produced in nature. Jack Sirichai, who headed the teamfrom Asia Plantation Capital’s Thailand office (based in Bangkok) stated,”It was a remarkable experience to meet Dharmendra and his group of farmers when we arrived. Over 500 of themhad took a trip, for lots of hours, to meet and greet us with an official reception, kept in our honour. We were overwhelmed to discover a lot of people who share our passion for establishing the agarwood industry and for employing the very best husbandry andocially responsible management practices to advance this massive plantation industry in a comsustainable way. Providing and nurturing community support is a foundation of our own policies at Asia Plantation Capital; to share this with such an enthusiastic group is key to our ongoing growth and success.
The Asia Plantation Capital team will now be working closely with Vanadurgi to keep track of and assess our inoculation processes.All countries (and even regions)have differing climatic and biodiversity conditions-all of which have a major result on the efficiency of these systems-and itis importantthatwe tailor and research study our techniques to providethemaximum yield and quality of completion oud that is produced in all the regions.
