Abstract

This research was done with the objective to review the eco-friendly practices in oil palm estates located in Sabah. The study was divided into three management aspects; namely fertilizer management, pest and disease management, and land preparation and biodiversity management. A survey method using questionnaire form was used to collect the data from the respondents. The questionnaire form was developed based on the 'Guidelines to Good Agriculture Practices for Palm Oil' which was introduced by Unilever (2003). A total of 17 respondents responded to the questionnaire. Descriptive statistics and chi-square test were used to analyze the data. From the test, it was discovered that the respondents were aware of eco-friendly practices and has already deployed the methods in their respective estates. This finding was contradicting with the statements made by Western countries, various bodies and the media.
