Integrated Pest Management is the practice of using a range of strategies to sustainably maintain pest populations within thresholds while causing minimal harm to local ecosystems. We have implemented IPM strategy with the aim of minimising the use of synthetic pesticides. Biological controls are introduced where possible, to reduce risks that could be caused by the release of chemicals into the ecosystem. We only use pesticides which are registered with and permitted by the Ministry of Agriculture.  We do not use any World Health Organisation (WHO) Class 1A and 1B pesticides or chemicals listed under the Stockholm Convention and Rotterdam Convention.

Oil palm pests include rates, rhinoceros beetles, bunch moths, bagworms and nettle caterpillars. Barn owls are used in our plantations as a biological control agent for fresh fruit bunches (FFB) eating rat populations. We also plant crops such as the Cassia cobanensis, Antigonon Leptopus, Turnera subulata, Cordyceps entomopathogenic, and Carambola sp. These beneficial plants encourage parasites and attract predators of palm leaf-eating pests such as bagworms and caterpillars.
