Malaysian Palm Oil Wildlife Conservation Fund (MPOWCF)
palm oil futures prices on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives closed higher as
the market extended its three-day rally on concerns that weather-related
horror will cut into production, dealers said.

to crops in Australia and Asia.
Dealers said rising food prices due to the La Nina horror was fuelling inflation fears.
