Daily Overview
Palm tree plantations surround the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Oil-producing palm trees were introduced to the country in the 1970s in order to diversify the local agriculture, which was heavily reliant on the rubber tree at the time. The trees are cultivated in terraces, cut into the contours of hills, to avoid erosion caused by streaming water. Malaysia is now one of the world’s largest suppliers of palm oil, exporting nearly 18 million tonnes per year.
