Sim: Grow corn for poultry feed and beat soaring prices


GEORGE TOWN: Corn could be both a new cash crop for Malaysia and the answer to soaring poultry feed prices that have caused egg pri­ces to spike, says Sim Tze Tzin.

The Deputy Agriculture and Agro-Based Minister said the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute had conducted research that found farmers could produce over eight tonnes per hectare, making it viable to produce corn as livestock feed.
