Oil Palm Seed Garden
        
        Considering the fact that there is a bright future for the development of oil palm in the country and consequent demand for hybrid seeds, the company has established a most modern oil palm seed germination centre at the Seed Garden at Thodupuzha. The production and sales of hybrid seeds have already been started.

        This is the premier institution in India which is capable of producing high quality tenera seeds. Major chunk of the demand for the seeds in the country has either been met by import and in view of the commission of the project, the import of the seeds can be substantially brought down. Hence the project has got a pivotal role to play for the supply of seeds for the development of oil palm cultivation in the country. About 5.50 lakhs seeds are produced in the garden at present. The production of seeds can be increased to 15 lakhs within a span of 5 years.
