Oil palm diversification: An impetus for nation building

Although a nascent oil palm industry of only three decades, producing a small segment of produce, Sri Lanka’s contribution in the global oil palm industry and its expertise was highlighted at a recently held Plantation Management Conference in Kuala Lumpur, the Mecca of the oil palm industry when Dr. Dan Seevaratnam was featured as one of the international speakers.

Dr. Seevaratnam was invited to speak on ‘Best Practices adopted in the Sri Lankan oil palm industry pertaining to drought mitigation and ground water management in terms of moisture conservation and also on the establishment of legume cover crops’.

Indonesia cultivates an estimated four million hectares and Malaysia three million hectares of oil palm in total, whilst Sri Lanka cultivates a mere 7,000 hectares and yet has received international recognition, which is a significant national feat.


Veteran plantation industry expert and Chief Executive Officer of Watawala Plantations PLC, Dr. Dan Seevaratnam recently extolled the virtues of increasing oil palm production locally.

“I am a great believer in outcomes and not just outputs,” said Seevaratnam. “Around 95% of edible oils consumed in Sri Lanka is imported at a large cost; looking at the oil palm industry, we need to see what this cost is in economic terms and what is the economic contribution to nation building.”

The local oil palm industry is considered an industry with huge potential and its products can be used for a diverse range of purposes. “If we produce our own oil in Sri Lanka we would save a great deal of foreign exchange and substitution of edible oil importation underscores the rationale for oil palm cultivation,” he added.


Oil palm has a potential oil yield of 3,000 to 4,000 litres of palm oil per hectare per annum. In comparison, coconut oil yields just 700 litres per hectare. Alternatives such as sunflower oil yields 600 litres in one hectare per year, and soya-bean oil has an output of only 460 litres per hectare per year. Oil palm is also a high yielding crop and very profitable, making it ideal for companies looking to diversify even in a situation where there is limited land, Dr. Seevaratnam said.

In addition, the labour requirement for oil palm cultivation is very much less, with just one worker required to cultivate every 10 hectares of crop, unlike tea which needs two or three workers per hectare. Similarly an oil palm harvester earns from Rs. 65,000 to Rs. 105,000 a month when compared to a good teaplucker’s average income of Rs. 25,000 per month.
“If we produce our own oil in Sri Lanka we would save a great deal of foreign exchange and substitution of edible oil importation underscores the rationale for oil palm cultivation – Dr. Dan Seevaratnam

Malaysia and Indonesia have brought in vital foreign exchange to their respective economies. Sri Lanka could certainly benefit by following a similar strategy – Dr. Rohan Fernando”

High yield coupled with low resource intensity also means higher profits, as Dr. Seevaratnam pointed out. Crude palm oil earns an estimated Rs. 150,000 to Rs. 200,000 per hectare, while rubber is struggling to make profits.

The need of the hour, Dr. Seevaratnam stressed is for local authorities to recognise the advantages of import substitution and its economic contribution, looking at the value addition it can bring to the economy.

“Apart from being in the industry for many years and cultivating millions of hectares, Malaysia and Indonesia have brought in vital foreign exchange to their respective economies. Sri Lanka could certainly benefit by following a similar strategy,” said Dr. Rohan Fernando, Director and Head of Business Development and Plantations of Aitken Spence PLC and the Managing Director for Elpitiya Plantations PLC.

“At the same time, the cost of investment for oil palm is lower than even that of crops like tea and rubber,” he added. The labour utilisation too was lower than for other alternatives. Hidden advantages are that this crop cannot be stolen from plantations, unlike scrap rubber or even tea leaves.

Yet for Dr. Fernando, the potential for import substitution was one of the most compelling reasons to diversify. This is especially so given that oil palm has such a stable market internationally, with a diverse array of consumers.

Sri Lanka needs to look seriously at diversifying and increasing its present production of palm oil in order to develop this industry to be on par with other countries, he said.

Diversification into oil palm cultivation has revealed impressive results in terms of high productivity, improved value addition and export capability. It is a win-win operation for the plantation companies, domestic consumers and the country as a whole.

Watawala Plantations disengages from national grid for palm oil production

Sustainable approach to edible oil production via introduction of in-house steam turbine with an investment of Rs. 30 m
In a bid to take the sustainability route in palm oil production, Sunshine Group’s Watawala Plantations has introduced a steam turbine to their production facility, which will take the burden off the national grid.
According to Watawala Plantations PLC Palm Oil Mill General Manager Milton Wijepala, prior to commissioning the turbine last month the company was totally dependent on the CEB to run the mill. This resulted in an expenditure of Rs. 1.5 million per month on electricity consumption. With the latest move, the company is looking at contributing to overall national productivity through the use of renewable energy

“Our intention is to cover the entire milling process using turbine power. It’s a national productivity aspect that we are looking at. On one side we are reducing our carbon footprint by using a completely natural process and on the other we will cut down our production costs whilst at the same time make our milling operation more efficient in terms of productivity,” the General Manager emphasises.
Elaborating on the milling process, using the turbine which is installed at a cost of Rs. 30 million, Wijepala says it is a simple progression, where the turbine is run on the waste of the palm oil fruit i.e. fibre. Although the fibre can also be used as fertiliser, with the installation of the turbine we are using a higher quantity to power the turbine, which makes it completely sustainable,” he says. Being the single largest plantation company to manage oil palm estates in Sri Lanka, they cater to the local demand, meeting about 7% of the total edible oil requirement. The company expects to recover the cost of the turbine in less than two years.

Reductions in imports will have major impact on economy
“Earlier, all edible oil was imported as we were operating on a very small scale. I don’t think we had even 1000 hectares of oil palm in Sri Lanka, 10-15 years ago. But it has now gone up to 7000 hectares. By having our own oil palm plantations locally, we are stopping a lot of foreign exchange from going out of the country. Reductions in imports will have a major impact on the economy in terms of growth,” says Wijepala.

Explaining that the company is on a productivity drive with a vision to reach a productivity enhancement level of up to 20 tonnes of FFB per hectare from its current level of 15 tonnes, by 2015, the General Manager says increase in productivity will also demand more grid power resulting in cost escalation. “Currently, Watawala Plantations has 3000 hectares under OP of which 2000 hectares is in bearing while the balance 1000 hectares is still in the immature stage. With an increase in land productivity, production is expected to go up by 4 million kg of FFB. However with the newly acquired turbine, the company is hopeful that they could bring down the cost of production substantially,” he adds. The company’s overall strategy is to even out the escalating cost of production mainly due to rising labour costs by setting it off against the reduced energy costs.

The whole concept of running a sustainable business in agriculture is to avoid spikes in production costs. Edible oil has a high cost in terms of its import bill and if companies work towards increasing yield by good agronomic practices (addressing stress factors such as physical, nutrition, moisture) and keep production costs from escalating, then Sri Lanka will be able to gradually slow this high cost import market and save valuable foreign exchange.

Oil Palm the Golden crop

Oil palm is a unique tree with higher economic value. It is a perennial plant belonging to family Palmae and sub family Cocoideae. It is scientifically named as Elaeis guineensis. Oil palm covers 2% of total cultivated lands in the world. 22% of the world’s total oil requirement is fulfilled by oil palm and it is the most widely produced edible oil in the world. . Palm oil is an edible product derived from the oil palm fruit. Palm oil is produced by many developing countries involved in this industry to get rid of poverty.

M. Jerry Wales an European Planter, commenced the cultivation of Oil Palm in Sri Lanka in 1968 at Nakiyadeniya estate by planting 68 Oil Palm plants covering an extent of 0.50 Ha. Since 1968, Oil Palm cultivation has rapidly increased throughout the Low Country Wet Zone of Sri Lanka as it was seen as an economical and profitable crop.

Since 1968 Oil Palm cultivation has been going through various changes in Field Management practices such as:

- Nursery Management
- Replating techniques and agronomic practices
- Harvesting operations and agronomic practices in mature area
- Development in human skills

Each and every management practice mentioned above plays a significant role to achieve the optimum bunch weight and the number of bunches resulting in higher yield per ha (YPH). Watawala Plantations has achieved the highest YPH amongst the Regional Planation Companies (RPCs) during 2012/13.

The significant achievement of YPH was a result of following the company’s approach in “doing things differently for improved results” and accordingly we have set a vision for “2015” through a road map to achieve a YPH of 20 tonnes during the year 2015

Company expects to reach this achievement of excellence, through motivation, developing the human capital and by the process of participatory management.

(From 31.03.2014 Report)
In palm oil we trust,’ says Watawala Plantations

Watawala Plantations PLC has reported revenue of Rs. 6.2 billion for the year ended 31 March 2014 (FY14), up 14.9% YoY. Net profit declined to Rs. 434 million for FY14, from Rs. 725 million recorded in the previous year.

The overall decline in YoY PAT is mainly attributed to the 20.0% YoY wage hike which came into effect from April 2013, which increased the cost of production across all crops. Other income also contracted in FY14 to Rs. 90 million, down 35.7% YoY.

4QFY14 revenue stood at Rs. 1.7 billion, up 35.2% over the same quarter last year. PAT declined 9.3% YoY to stand at Rs. 123 million. The growth in revenue for 4QFY14 came on the back of higher volumes for both palm oil (+7.2% YoY), and tea (+2.3% YoY).

Palm oil segment

The Palm Oil segment registered a revenue growth of 5.2% YoY to reach Rs. 1.4 billion in FY14, which accounted for 22.3% of the company’s revenue during the year. The revenue growth was mainly driven by an impressive increase in Fresh Fruit Bunch (FFB) Yield, recorded at 16,833 kg per ha in FY14, from 15,993 kg per ha in the previous year, resulting from the adoption of good agricultural practices over the last few years, in line with the company’s agriculture policy. The Crude Palm Oil (CPO) production grew 9.0% YoY to 8.13m kg for FY14 from 7.46m kg recorded last year, and. The segment maintained its position as the highest contributor to company profitability, having made a net profit of Rs. 633 million for FY14. WATA continues to be the single biggest CPO producer in Sri Lanka.

The controlling stake changed in hands today. 
The largest shareholder "Estate Management Services (Pvt) Ltd (EMSL)" held ~74% of WATA.N has sold today to "Sunshine Wilmar (Pvt) Ltd".  Sunshine (SUN.N) was the controlling party of EMSL too. So, it appears that the transaction is a part of SUN's group restructuring process taking WATA under its direct control.

Right now Oil Palm global prices at 5yr high levels and there is lot of support from budget for Agri and well as Dairy.

WATA has been historically a high dividend yielding counter, there is the added bonus of c.10% dividend gains per annum in additional to capital gains too. 

With forward PE multiples around 6x, this share has so much more pontential than current value of around 58/- per share. 

As per my valuation, the fair value should be around 75/- minimum in 1 year with a 30% upside (around 40% including dividends)!

This is not a buy/sell recommendation. *DYOR (Do Your Own Research)

Rs 1000/= wage issue doesn't affect WATA so much. Bcz they have around 2500 emplyees.
