Innovations crucial for sustainable agriculture


IN Malaysia, the trend toward organic agriculture has seen significant growth since the early 2000s. From just 131ha of organic farms in 2001, the number grew 18-fold to 2,367ha by 2006. Despite this expansion, organic agriculture remains a niche market in Malaysia, constituting only 0.01% of total agricultural land area.

Moreover, the number of organic-certified farms has not expanded substantially. Today, it stands at just 436ha across 55 farms that have maintained their myOrganic certification since 2008.
