GREEN-BASED INTELLIGENT SPICES FOREST ( GBISF ).
is a program to cultivate 6 main types of spices (selected) in Malaysia, such as cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, candlenut, star Annies, and cardamom. This program was triggered to help increase the income of households, especially farmers who have a small area of conscious suitable for planting spice trees. The program is carried out agricultural efforts at a minimum of 20 spice trees per/household. This program is considered not to burden household due to its conscious nature of care (pre-forest properties of spice trees ) production 1-time per/year, e.g. seasonality in August-October, and the use of organic fertilizers.
Candlenuts will fall out like rubber seeds, farmers only need to collect candlenut seeds. Easy-to-manage result management, simple revenue management methods, drying using sunlight. The result that has been perfectly dried can be stored for a long time. not perishable, and even better in quality. The method of providing market demand from spice produce, such as packaging and end products depends on the demand. The demand for spices and their needs can be expanded according to the usefulness and quality of demand for the product.
The demand for spices is very high, making farmers have no problem with the issue of lack of demand for the consumer market. The price of spices remains high, less competitive, and continues to rise, making this effort especially helpful to households.
This program is open to the whole community, with various methods tailored for the community to participate in it This spice tree plan can to provides a good return to the household: for example, one clove tree can give an income between RM.1000.00 - 1500.00 per/tree per/year.
The program is carefully designed and developed from the stage - understanding, dissemination of information, guidance, revenue management, as well as product quality.
This program was also developed with the responsibility of providing the well-being of the 'environment' environment of social responsibility and community awareness on the importance of maintaining and managing a clean and healthy green environment both the nature of the spice tree, fresh, green, clean, and healthy.
The GBISF program is developed with a centralized management system with the inclusion of professional resources, government agencies, NGOs, and specific agencies that are considered capable of providing input as well as being the driving force of the program.
GBISF will implement and provide this program on an orderly basis from the development of the planting stage program structure and implement the final responsibilities to the local market level' end product' and export.
GBISF with various types of research is confident that this spice cultivation program for households can survive on its points, in line with the position of spices as a source of consumer needs with no time limit and boundaries. Spice has been very close to the lives of consumers for a long time - with the ability of the producing space limited to the equator land and part of the tropics.
