Research and Development

Sime Darby Plantation has been at the forefront of agriculture research and development since early
1900s. We have made considerable contributions in developing and pioneering best management practices
in the oil palm industry and in many instances, assisted in commercialising them. Some of our most
significant contributions include the award winning zero burning replanting technique, leading
management practices on water conservation and irrigation, stewardship in Integrated Pest Management
(IPM), and the conversion of Empty Fruit Bunches (EFB) and Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) into
compost for plantations.
Sime Darby Plantation also became a pioneer in successfully sequencing, assembling and annotating the
oil palm genome. With this breakthrough, we are ready to revolutionise the process of oil palm breeding.
Calix 600
Superior yielding Oil Palms originating from elite parental lines.

Sime Darbys Calix 600 oil palm seed comes with highly advanced characteristics as it is bred from elite
parental lines Deli Dura as the mother palm and AVROS Pisifera as the father palm. The seed gives early
or better yields, up to 10 tonnes per ha/year after 24 to 36 months of field planting. The homogenous
growth of the seeds improves the efficiency of field operations.
Calix 600 is produced from years of scientific research excellence gathered from Guthrie, Golden
Hope and Sime Darby originating from elite parental lines
Its superior oil yield could produce up to 10mt/ha/yr with an earlier production of fresh fruit
bunch (FFB)
Calix 600 promises high early yield, thin shell, thick mesocarp. Its homogenous growth provides
more efficient field operations
Calix 600 offers unprecedented quality and superior oil yield as far as oil palm plantation is
Enzyme Technology to Tailor Fat Functionality
We are continuously aiming for new formulations based on healthier vegetable oils and fats that have the
right nutritional balance and simultaneously provide the desired taste and texture of foods. Sime Darby
Plantation uses modern enzyme technology to tailor functional properties of vegetable oils. This
technology is mainly used to manufacture high quality hardstocks for application in consumer spreads
and bakery margarines. The enzyme technology is 'greener' as it uses less energy, does not use chemicals
and eliminates waste water.
Sime Darby R&D Laboratory Services Recognized as World-Class
Lab services was awarded the Institut Kimia Malaysia (IKM) President Laboratory Award for 2014. The
award is the most prestigious one handed out by IKM and is bestowed upon the lab that has demonstrated
excellent achievement in the practice of chemistry. SDR Labs was nominated in the highly competitive
Laboratories from Industry category where it won against competition such as Petronas Labs.
Sime Darby Seeds & Agricultural Services Sdn Bhd (SDSAS)
Sime Darby Seeds & Agricultural Services Sdn Bhd (SDSAS) is one of the world leaders in superior
quality oil palm seed production, and aside from its leading calix 600 seed, SDSAS also produces a wide
variety of high quality seed varieties, such as GH500, Guthrie DxP and HRU DxP.
SDSAS production processes follow the stringent guidelines of ISO 9001: 2000 Quality Management
Systems, from controlled pollination right up to the dispatch of carefully selected germinated seeds to our
SDSAS also works closely with Sime Darby Plantations Research & Development team to provide the
advisory and consultancy services as our effort to develop the countrys oil palm industry. The scope of
services in advisory and consultancy includes:
Agronomy services for fertilizer recommendation
Planting Advisory services
Palm Oil Mill Advisory services
Plantation Evaluation studies
Laboratory Analytical services
Currently, we cover 272,170 ha on Agronomic and Planting Advisory services to external customer.
Oil Palm Seeds Production In Indonesia
Currently our Plantation arm in Indonesia, Minamas, imports from 50% to 100% of its required
oil palm seed from SDSAS, with the remaining amount sourced from local Indonesian
companies. In order to bolster the productivity of our Indonesian estates and reduce operating
cost, it is critical for Minamas to have the capability to produce high quality oil palm planting
materials locally. Sime Darby has initiated a collaboration with the Indonesian Oil Palm Research
Institute (IOPRI) to produce seeds from Indonesian produced fresh fruit bunches (FFBs) for use
by our Indonesian estates.
Oil Palm Seeds To Liberia
SDSAS also supplies seeds to our estate in Liberia, which currently is still in its early stages of
development. Plans are underway to ensure that our Liberia estate will continue to have a steady
supply of seeds for the development of the 220,000 hectares of available landbank.
About R&D Research
When research into the oil palm genome began in 2003, Sime Darby Plantation (SDP), in realising its
potential, quickly got on board, recruiting the best biotechnologists in the business and restructuring the
Sime Darby Technology Centre to cater specifically for research in the biotechnology field of study. In
November 2005, collaborative efforts on a project to analyse gene expression data began with bio-
informatics company Synamatix, and it was during this time that the possibility of sequencing the
genome was explored. This collaboration, led by Dr. K. Harikrishna, the head of SDPs R&D team,
helped Sime Darby Plantation become the first company to completely sequence, assemble and annotate
the complex sequence of 1.8 billion chemical units that make up the oil palms genetic code.
From 2009 onwards, the genome sequence of oil palm was used to identify 1,000 genetic differences in
Sime Darbys elite materials that are highly associated with yield. State-of-the-art high throughput genetic
testing facilities were established to allow fast commercialisation of these new technologies. With the
help of Sime Darby Plantations over 20 years of experience in palm breeding studies, the team analysed
the genetic code to identify genetic traits of high yielding palms. The team was then able to produce a
formula to predict the yield of an oil palm using genetic testing.
Oil palm is already the most efficient oilseed crop in the world, capable of producing ten times more oil
per hectare than other leading oilseed crops. Through genetic analysis and selection, Sime Darby would
be able to select ideotype oil palms that can further improve the yields per hectare of these crops. This
would help Sime Darby to continue meeting the worlds demands for oils and fats without increasing their
land usage. Unlike Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) crops, the ideotype oil palms seeds are
naturally pollinated seeds that have been selected based on results from a genetic test, rather than through
genetic modification.
In April 2016, Sime Darby Plantation successfully conducted the first commercial planting of the new
high-yielding oil palm genome at its Dusun Durian Estate in Banting, Selangor.

The Sime Darby Genome Select oil palm is expected to deliver further significant improvements in
yield per hectare over the long run and is anticipated to have the potential to produce 9.9 metric tonnes of
oil per hectare as a first 5 year average yield under the best environmental conditions.

According to SDP Chairman, Tan Sri Dato Abdul Ghani Othman, this achievement represents a new and
historic chapter in the oil palm industry. The future of the oil palm industry has never been more exciting
with SDP at the forefront with this quantum leap!
