Our Plans for Future
The overall theme for the Bio Desaru initiative is the development of agro-biotechnology in smart partnership with the other company the private sector, transforming Bio Desaru into a key agro-food production and eco-tourism zone in the region.
Designed with a self-sustaining concept, Bio Desaru will optimize land usage by employing the latest agro-biotechnological processes coupled with the selection of high yielding and high value seedlings, new clones that are more resistant to pest attacks and diseases, as well as genetically superior species to maximize value added food output.
As biotechnology provides a total solution to the problems faced by the agricultural sector, Bio Desaru will focus on the extensive application of proven microbe solutions in the physical environment and food production.
Bio-augmentation or genetic engineering and plant genomics such as tissue culture and embryo transfer will be optimized and enhanced to help ensure high yielding, high value agricultural produce.
Bio Desaru is not only endowed with a vast potential for agriculture, it is also blessed with natural strength for eco-tourism development.
With its huge land bank, a natural undulating landscape, crystal clear river and wetland plus the sea frontage, Bio Desaru is ideally planned for open and closed bio-farming, bio-aquaculture, bio-livestock and agro-tourism industry. The commercial activities to be carried out will include a wide range of organic crops and herbs, ornamental plants, fruits and vegetables, fish and dairy products.
Supporting services such as accommodation for manpower, chalets and tourist related facilities as well as downstream processing plants will be established to meet the needs of the project as well as to ensure vibrancy of the region.
Emphasis will also be placed on the development of human capital in biotechnology via education and training as well as modern farming technology transfer.
In view of the size of the development, Bio Desaru can attain organic growth by itself in years to come. With the right blend of modern biotechnology and agro-culture, the promise of success and lucrative returns for investors will be further enhanced.
A committed body responsible in implementing and providing guidance to modern farming and specifications as well as good farming practice, will help develop another edge in modern industry farming solution.
