Kota Belud IADA Implements Japanese Technology To Increase Rice Yields

KOTA BELUD – About 32.3 hectares of rice land in Kampung Jawi-Jawi, here, serves as the first area to implement the use of technology and modern machinery from Japan to increase farmers rice yields.

Kota Belud Integrated Agriculture Development Area (IADA) director Salmah Labulla said the technology and modern machinery were similar to that used by Japanese farmers in their rice cultivation activities.

She said the approach would be implemented through a smart partnership between Kota Belud IADA and two private companies for a period of five years, with the first phase involving capital investments of RM2.5 million, which began last January.
