07/10/04 - Heavy Influence of Rainfall on Seasonal Palm Oil Production Thefactors influencing palm oil production differ fundamentally from thoseinfluencing the output of seed oils, at least as far as the seasonalfluctuations are concerned. While the seasonal fluctuations of seed oiloutput are man-made, those of palm oil are made biologically and canvirtually not be influenced by man. Oilseed crops are harvested within ashort period of 6-8 weeks and it then depends on the decision of theoilseed millers how they distribute the crushings over the whole season.The main factors influencing their decision are the demand for theproducts, the prices for the raw material and the products as well as thecrush margins resulting therefrom.As against this, the distribution of palm oil production over a year canvirtually not be influenced by the producers. It is dependent mainly onthe heavy fluctuations of rainfall in the oil palm producing areas. Onlythe annual changes in palm oil production are partly influenced by man,viz. by the changes in plantings and the resulting changes in the maturearea, though only, 2½-4 years later. Additionally any changes infertilizing and other agronomic inputs as well as the biological yieldcycle influence the annual changes in production.A look at Malaysia, the world’s largest palm oil producer, reveals howenormous the monthly changes in rainfall are. The following graphs showthat even the multiyear monthly averages fluctuated sharply between 334 mmin November and 124 mm in June. In between there is an interim peak at 235mm in April (all in West Malaysia). In assessing the effects of rainfallon palm oil production it should be taken into consideration that oilpalms are perennial crops, viz. the production process lasts throughout ayear and several years. That is, every month the following stages of theprocess occur simultaneously and continuously:- Initiation of the buds (around three years before the harvest),- Sex differentiation (around two years before the harvest), influencingthe number of fresh fruit bunches (FFB) per hectare,- Abortion of female fruits, if any (about ten months before the harvest),influencing the final FFB number to be harvested and- Flowering (about 5 months before the harvest).
