Following the success of 5 International Planters Conferences held since 1994, The Incorporated Society of Planters is organizing its 6th International Planters Conference 2009(IPC 2009) with the theme “Plantation Agriculture and Environment”Major plantation crops producing and exporting countries are constantly targeted for not taking care and protecting the environment sufficiently in the expansion and development of plantation agriculture. The criticism goes as far as accusing these countries of environmental neglect/damage in the process. Many planters in Malaysia and elsewhere, even some countries for that matter, may not be fully aware, at best confused, due to lack of exposure to the multiplicity of factors involving the issue. ISP felt that it is desirable, very useful and timely that planters and plantation companies in Malaysia and countries in the same situation be exposed and enlightened on the matter to give them the proper and the right perspective.
