Ways to Improve the Production at the Farm
In an effort to improve the quality of its produce, the dripping irrigation system was implemented at the farm in 2004. The innovative approach helped the farm to yield better quality products and substantially reduces the percentage of reject rate. The dripping system irrigation is an underground system which uses pump and valves to transport the water. The water, which came from the 30.48 m boring water, is distributed to crops through a network of pipes that is manually controlled by the workers every morning. The new system managed to optimise the farm’s daily water consumption since it only requires minimal amount of water.

The Edge Malaysia, October 7, 2019 - Go online to go global, SMEs urged
Malaysian businesses are missing out on a multibillion-dollar social media economy by not using social media marketing and e-commerce sales channels. While it has become easier than ever for businesses to set up an online presence and start selling relatively quickly, a staggering number of them have refused to engage in either thus far. But getting started with social media and e-commerce sales channels are not nearly as complicated as they may fear.
