    Malaysian Floriculture Industry Development Policy

    Authors: Nik Rozana Nik Mohd Masdek and Noorlidawati Ab Halim

    Publisher: FFTC-AP

    Malaysia is home to a wide variety of plants species. Located in the tropics, it is one of the most diverse floristic regions in the world. Thus, Malaysia has the advantage of developing and advancing its floriculture industry which could generate decent income to producers and traders and contribute to the national income. Floriculture production value recorded an increase of 23.3%; from RM 417 million (US$101 million) to almost RM 514 million in the last five years (2011-2015), in line with the increase in acreage planted within the same period. Exports reached 108 metric tons in 2012 which was considered high, but experienced a slight decline in the following years until 2014. However, Malaysia is still ranked among the top ten exporting countries in the world for floriculture products. Among its major export destination countries are Japan, Australia and Hong Kong.

    Ecosystem Management: ECO-Engineering Project in Rice Plot in Sungai Besar, Selangor, Malaysia

    Ecosystem Management is a process that aims to conserve major ecological services and restore natural resources while meeting the socioeconomic, political and cultural needs of current and future generations. This is important to ensure that every country continues to maintain its vital biodiversity for future sustainable development. In the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) article 2, biodiversity refers essentially to the diversity of living organisms, the genes they contain and the communities to which they contribute. These also include diversity within and between ecosystems. In general, biodiversity plays an important role in almost everything – from climate change mitigation, restoration of degraded habitats, management of an ecosystem, source of medicine for treatment of diseases and control from biological invasions.

    Transforming Agriculture Research into Commercialisation: Experience of Universiti Putra Malaysia

    Authors: Mohd-Azmi, M. L., Jesse, F. F. A., Sarah, S. A., Roslan, S., Zuraidah, A. and Hambali, I. U.

    Publisher: UPM Press, Universiti Putra Malaysia

    One of the major goals of any high impact research and development is an overall improvement in the well-being and sustainable quality of life through innovations. As universities continuously disseminate innovations from R&D activities, many prototypes and lab-scale products, whether tangible or intangible, can be made available for public use. The success of bringing these innovations to the marketplace depends on the quality and capability of the technology transfer office to lead different types of activities, engagements, negotiation and inclusiveness towards fulfilling the needs of commercialisation partners and the market. This paper presented a general overview of transforming research output into commercialisation in the context of Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). Throughout this paper, different commercialization channels, the roles of technology transfer offices and multiple agencies are further discussed with a special focus on agricultural innovations and technologies. This review contributes to both academic and agricultural industry research, development and commercialization activities by illustrating current innovation produced by UPM and industry-university collaboration, conducted at a leading agriculture university.

    Potential Benefits of TPPA On Malaysia's Agrofood Sector

    Author: Rozhan Abu Dardak

    Publisher: FFTC-AP

    Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) is a comprehensive trade agreement among 12 counties in the Asia Pacific region. The countries which participated in the agreement are United States of America, Peru, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, Chile, Japan, Australia, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei and Malaysia. The agreement was signed on 4 February 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand. It will however, enter into force after all countries or at least six of the member countries which signed the agreement ratify within two years or before 4 February 2018. The agreement aims to promote economic growth of the countries through a more liberalise trade between member countries. The TPPA contains measures that reduce or abolish trade barriers, the management and protection of environment, good governance, human rights, intellectual property rights, labor standards, and investor-state dispute settlement.

    Malaysia started the negotiations to participate in the TPPA on October 2010. The Ministry of International Trade and Investment was mandated to coordinate Malaysia's participation in the TPPA negotiations. There are 21 areas of negotiations that include market access in goods, technical barriers to trade, competition, rules of origin, custom cooperation, e-commerce, capacity building and trade remedies. This paper focuses on the potential benefit of participating the TPPA on the agro-food sector in Malaysia.

    -Malaysian palm oil stocks/production higher than expected
    -USDA Ag Sec says talks with China regarding US ethanol imports "positive"
    -USDA reports small soybean sale to unknown
    -EIA lowers biodiesel production forecast
    -Long-term US weather forecasts not worst-case, but concerns remain elevated

    Grain markets traded in fairly tight ranges overnight, with wheat continuing to slip lower on ideas of improving/less concerning weather, while soybeans were little-changed and corn marginally higher. Yesterday’s USDA report didn’t provide much, if any, new developments for the markets with burdensome stocks and demand questions/concerns remaining in place for corn, wheat and soybeans. The focus will increasingly be on the U.S. weather situation with corn and spring wheat planting delays all but expected at this time, but as long as heavy, persistent rains are not seen resulting in significant widespread flooding, the general perception may be that the crops eventually will get in. Longer-term forecasts at this time are not of the worst case scenario variety, so with it still only being early/mid-April, concerns generally remain limited, but with heightened awareness.
