This article shows you the power of LEILI’s crop nutrition technologies on durian in Malaysian Crown Durian Ecological Farm.
The 18.7-ha Crown Durian Ecological Park in Upper Perak, Malaysia, primarily grows Black Thorn and Musang King durians. Musang King durians are smaller, usually weight between 1.6-3 kg, with greyish-green skin and a distinct pentacle at the bottom. Their flesh is usually bright golden yellow, with a delicate taste, less fibrous, and slightly bitter.
Musang King durian
Musang King durian growers often face challenges like low fruit set rates and frequent pest and pathogen outbreaks. The saying goes, "pests in drought, pathogens in rain." Pest and pathogen damage affects durian tree growth and even leads to their death.
