Farming the smart way is the way to stay ahead of game. To keep up with future demand, planters and farmers will need to work in smarter ways to increase productivity. Given the lack of interest among local laborers to work in plantations and the difficulty in employing foreign workers in the near future, the plantation industry needs to undergo a paradigm shift from one that was heavily reliant on labor to mechanization.

Let’s move away from taking a blanket approach- the plantation industry has to be optimistic that in the long run technology innovation, mechanization and automation process will be the practical solution to improve its productivity and competitiveness.
