INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT

Pests like rodents, bagworms and weeds are nuisance in our plantations and must be controlled below the level that can cost economic injury.

In UMB, we acknowledge the myriad negative impacts of chemical usage rendered to humankind and environment. We discourage the use of Class 1 pesticide and minimize the use of other chemical pesticides. For a more environmentally-friendly approach, we adopt Integrated Pest Management, a method to suppress the pest population below the threshold level by utilizing different techniques like biological, physical and cultural methods.

Beneficial plants like Turnera subulata, Antigonon leptopus and Cassia cobanensis are cultivated in nursery and planted progressively along main roads and field roads. Population of natural enemies of pests are boosted and this keeps the ecosystem balance in check thus preventing pest outbreaks.

Cassia cobanensis

In combating rats, we prioritize the use of barn owls. To establish a favorable environment for the proliferation of barn owls, we:

  • Avoid the use of second generation rat baits.
  • Barn owl box placed under shades, away from direct sunlight.

ZERO BURNING

As legal compliance and awareness on the environment health, we do not authorize zero burning activity in our premise including housing quarters. Domestic wastes are collected on time and dispose through soil burial.

Our replanting activity is well-planned so as not to give way for burning activity. Felled palms are chipped and exposed to direct sunlight. This adds nutrients to soil and inhibit ganoderma spread.

WASTE MANAGEMENT

UMB has been implementing various initiatives to reduce waste and effluent and minimise our environmental impact. Organic wastes such as palm kernel shells and fibers are reused for energy generation in the palm oil mill. Almost half of the palm oil mill effluent (“POME”) generated during the palm oil mill processing is channelled to compost plants for compost (organic fertiliser) production. While the other half are treated in the ponds before transfer to the fields via furrow for land application.

Scheduled wastes such as spent lubricant oil and fuel filters are collected and disposed of following the local regulations. Domestic wastes in the estates are managed through the local council or sent to landfills. UMB aims to segregate the domestic waste before disposal and further reduce the generation of such wastes.

WASTE MANAGEMENT

All types of wastes including domestic, scheduled and clinical are identified and waste management plan is devised to handle the waste in an environmentally-friendly manner.

Competent employees are sent to Scheduled Waste Training to equip themselves with knowledge and qualifications to handle the wastes.

We have recently engage Kualiti Alam to provide training and for collecting the scheduled wastes in estate level.
