The Pineapple Agro Site (Laman Nanas) at the 2022 Malaysia Horticulture and Agrotourism Exhibition (MAHA) lets visitors experience the atmosphere in a pineapple field for themselves.

The director of the Malaysian Pineapple Industry Institute (LPNM) Central Region, Muhamad Yusni Ramelan, said it’s an effort to bring pineapple farming knowledge to visitors while generating public interest in the industry.

At Laman Nanas we provide a planting area of ​​two acres (0.8 hectares), involving the cultivation of more than seven types of pineapple found in the country, including Josapine, MD2 and Yankee.

He said this year’s MAHA would also feature the latest innovations regarding planting pineapples at night (Pineapple Night Farming).

It would provide an overview of the various methods of managing these fruit trees, generally done during the day.

The method that uses solar power is an effort to transform LPNM by optimizing renewable energy sources.

New Kids On The Block

In addition, Laman Nanas will also launch two new Varieties Lists, namely Cobek Pineapple (AC13) and Crystal Honey Pineapple (AC14).

The new breed can provide entrepreneurs with broader alternatives to choosing the type of pineapple to grow.

The innovation is also timely as it would cater to the increasing demand for fresh pineapple in Indonesia.

For the sale of Pineapple Cobek and Crystal Honey, at this time, it can reach the price of a field between RM3 to RM4 a kilo, and can reach up to RM6 a kilo depending on the quality of the fruit.

LPNM Central Region director Muhamad Yusni Ramelan on the attractive pricing of the new pineapple varieties.

LPNM targets 100,000 visitors during the 11 days of MAHA and as much as RM1.5 million in merchandise value.

The Laman Nanas features various exhibitors, including Small and Simple Industry (IKS) entrepreneurs under LPNM, selling pineapple-based foods and non-food items.

Among other activities are pineapple hunt, fruit weight contest, cooking competitions, sharing of the success of LPNM entrepreneurs and celebrity cooking demonstrations.

The earliest 1,000 visitors to Laman Nanas have the chance to receive a chicken and a pineapple.

 MAHA 2022 is taking place from 4 to 14 August.
