Recognising high demands for quality products, Darmex Agro shows careful attention on every detail including the quality of its seedlings and development process.
The company uses a high yielding material from common plantations throughout South East Asia, known as ‘Tenera’, which has a high bunch weight and oil content. Darmex Agro acquires its germinated seeds from Socfin and Marihat, planted in the nursery and selected before grown in plantation area. Recently, a substantial seed garden has been established to supply Darmex Agro with palm tree seeds.
Today, Darmex Agro owns eight plantation areas spread across Riau province, Sumatra in Benai, Cerenti, Bangkinang, Siberida, Kota Tengah, Baserah and Palalawan.
