The Oil Palm Management Program (OMP), 2009
The Oil Palm Management Program (OMP) is an Agricultural Management Information System for agronomy and field data management in oil palm plantations developed by Agrisoft Systems Indonesia (www.agrisoft-systems.com). As a long-term supporter and discussion partner in the development, IPNI endorses the software and currently uses it to manage the data of its yield intensification program using the best management practice (BMP) concept.
During the last year, OMP was further developed with a set of new user-defined categories and extended productivity parameters, sustainability indicators, analytical reports, and advanced spatial mapping concepts to support the specific requirements for precision agriculture in oil palm. The OMP-AMIS (Agronomic Management Information System) is now commercially used for plantation management in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Malaysia, and Guatemala, where it helps to address some of the core issues of the industry (such as low productivity, long-term sustainability, and environmental acceptance). OMP tools are used for site-specific management to assess and react to in-field variability with a set of fine-tuned best management actions and optimized inputs, on-time, and at the right location. The database is designed for long-term data management and can support two crop cycles. It produces ‘proof of action’ reports and ‘change over time’ views and analyses from a wide set of parameters, which can be used directly for Round Table for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) auditing and ISO certification.
During 2010, OMP will be further developed with a focus on a specific OMP-AMIS version for smallholder and outgrower operations, which are major producers in Indonesia and PNG, on advanced mapping and special data analysis methods (grid maps), on environmental aspects (RSPO dashboard report), and on the development of user or task-specific solutions, like the CLA crop loss auditing program, which can be used to monitor harvesting standards.
