Palm oil harvests take place twice a month and last for a week. Motorbikes are loaded with kernel and taken to Dosan
Sumatra, Indonesia where the harvest is weighed. The fruit is then taken by truck to a milling station in Lubuk Dalam.
This farming activity is part of an innovative, independent small-holder approach to palm oil production that has delivered social and economic benefits and helped protect the remaining forest. The Dosan community has committed to protecting its forests and moving to improved environmental management practices that include zero burning, no herbicide use and improved water management to maintain the peatland water system.
