Workers in Malaysia's palm oil plantations are scarce - a 25% drop in yield

Palm oil yields in Malaysia will decrease by up to 25% due to the lack of workers in the coming months. The Malaysian Palm Oil Association (MOPA) fears this.
The advocates of palm oil plantation operators criticize the government's decision to limit the number of guest workers until December. Even before the COVID 19 pandemic, 36,000 workers were missing. That alone led to a 10-25% drop in yield for palm oil.
Malaysia is the second largest palm oil producer in the world. The companies recruit workers from Bangladesh and Indonesia to operate the plantations. These workers make up 84% of the workforce. Thousands of workers have moved home in the corona pandemic and now the borders are becoming an obstacle to returnees.
Now observers fear a delay in harvesting and oil production. The highlight of the season is September. Getting workers from your own country is not that easy because the work is dirty and dangerous. Also not easy and challenging.
