How to Planting Effective Oil Palm Sprouts

    How to Planting Effective Oil Palm Sprouts

    After the process of determining the needs and ordering of the sprouts, the next step is planting the sprouts into the hyplug. Seedlings that come must be planted immediately. because if it is too late the plumule and radicle are elongated making it difficult to plant, the sprouts are damaged by fungus and can also become dry/dead. Should be planted a maximum of 5 days after receipt. In practice, if the seeds arrive at night, they will be planted the next day. Seedlings must match the identity in the seed bag with the list of crosses. This is to identify if the seeds to be planted are legal.

When it will be planted the bag of sprouts is opened carefully. Sprouts must be planted correctly. The radicle is facing downwards, and the plumule is covered by a layer of soil. The tools used in the activity of planting sprouts viz

1. Mini drill, to make a hole in the agroblend application hyplug.

2. 6 gram measuring spoon, for the application of agroblend hole fertilizer sowing

3. Tampah, for fertilizer and seed containers before planting


1. Oil palm sprouts, seeds to be planted

2. Agroblend, SRF slow release fertilizer as a source of nutrition to meet the needs of sprouts

3. Hyplug, the media where the sprouts will be planted.

The Preparation Procedures are as follows:

1. Drill or drill holes for agroblend fertilizer application.

2. Application of agroblend fertilizer 3 grams per hole.

3. 3. At the time of planting, the bag is opened and sprinkled with water to provide moisture at each planting when the weather is hot. In moist planting conditions this step is not necessary. Then put it in the tray and count the amount.

4. With your thumb, make a planting hole 2-3 cm deep in the middle of each hyplug. Planting sprouts must pay attention to the position of the radicle which will be positioned downwards and the plumule which will be positioned upwards. The sprouts are placed at the bottom of the hole with the radicle below and covered with soil for a maximum of 1 cm. Seeds should be planted approximately 1 cm below the soil surface, seeds should not be planted upside down or too deep. Reverse cropping will cause leaves to curl and development to slow down. Planting is done simultaneously with the selection of sprouts. Normal sprouts: root candidates (radicle) and stem candidates (plumule) are clearly visible, 10 - 12 mm long. Radicule has a blunt tip like a hood, rather rough, Plumule has a sharp tip like a spear.

Characteristics of abnormal sprouts that must be culling or selection:

1. Radicle and plumula brown (Brown germ)

2. Broken radicle and plumula (Broken)

3. Germinate further, Prospective roots are too long. It should be 1.5 cm (1.5 cm) when appropriate for planting. (Overgrown).

4. At the tip of the prospective roots and stems (radicles and plumula) are brown (Chill Damage)

5. Prospective roots and stems (radicles and plumula) attacked by fungi (Rotting)

    If there are doubletones, tripletons and so on, then the best one is maintained and the others are broken. Then planted according to the steps above. After planting is complete, watering is done immediately with sumisansui.
