Corn farming could yield high profits for Malaysia


Malaysia’s Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry believes corn farming has the potential to garner high profits for the country. This is prompting research and development in the area. Its minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek said the country would be emulating success stories on corn-farming from Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.

“If these countries are already profiting from it, this means that we can do the same. There is thus no issue of the compatibility of corn-farming on our land.” Currently in the introductory process at the moment, the minister targets that the country would be successful in the farming of its own corn seeds within two to three years’ time.
