A. Background

Malaysia is one of the main exporter countries of pineapple in the

world beside Thailand, Philippine, Indonesia, Hawaii, Ivory Coast, Kenya,
Brazil, Taiwan, Australia, India, and South Africa. In 2008 FAO
announced the pineapple income in Malaysia. Malaysian occupies the 8 th
rank follows the value of USD 69.620 and 10th in the world.

Pineapples contain a very high vitamin C that are good for health
especially in assisting the healing of wounds or injuries, it is also able to
help the process of absorption of iron in the blood. The vitamin B,
especially B1 (Thiamin) which pineapples contain has function to assist
the process of digesting in the intestine. In addition, the vitamin B3
(niacin) in pineapples containing carbohidrates can manage the circulatory
system. The content of potassium and sodium in pineapple can balance the
content of water in the human body. Last but not least the substance of a
type of enzyme in pineapples is very useful in the field of the treatment
called enzyme Bromelin, which is able to reduce swelling () and helps the
process of blood clotting.

Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is a tropical plant of the family

Bromeliaceae which is believed to come from the eastern part of South
America. Since 16th century, the history of the pineapple has been
introduced in Malay Land by the Portuguese. In 1921, pineapple began to
grow in Singapore, Johor, and Selangor. In Malaysia particuarly, there are
a pineapple plant width 16.850 hectares planted in 2010, and Johor is the
site of the largest pineapple plant field within this country.

Lembaga Pemasaran Pertanian Persekutuan or well-known as

FAMA (Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority) is a marketing agency
under the Ministry of Agriculture and Industri Asas Tani Malaysia. FAMA

was established on September 30, 1965, for the purpose of supervising,

coordinating, organizing and developing Malaysian marketing agricultural
products, including import and export. Agricultural products included
under the supervision of FAMA are vegetables, fruits, grains, herbs, farm,
and aquaculture. In the fruit sector, FAMA served to market various types
of fruit harvest, and one of them is pineapple.

Therefore, the author chose Malaysia, especially Selangor, Kampong

Raja Musa, as a place for internship because this location has abundant
pineapple plantation. Other than that, there are a lot of various
commodities grown in one vast land here that made this area became more
special for the author, because normally in Malaysia every each one of
land consists of one commodity only.

Pineapple planting and pinapple processing activities cannot be

separated from the marketing process, these two things has a high level of
dependency and effect to each other. On the other hand, in every market
activity, must be followed by marketing, and any marketing activities are
functioned to find or create a market. *(ini secara grammar sudah aku
betulkan tapi honestly aku ga paham kalo bca konteks Bahasa
Indonesianya) These proceses are what the community in Kampong Raja
Musa has carried out, and also related to the internship activities that the
writer has been doing. In this case, the author is doing and observing the
marketing process of products pineapple that coming from Kampong Raja
Musa which has not been yet processed to FAMA.

B. Purpose
Based on the background above, the author found some points that
can be a purpose of writing of this report, they are:

1. To find out the role of LPNM in the cultivation counseling of

pineapple in Kampong Raja Musa.
2. To find out the role of FAMA towards the marketing of pineapple
products in Malaysia


The Malaysian Pineapple Industry Board (MPIB) is the legal entity

founded in 1957 formerly known as Lembaga Perusahaan Nanas Tanah
Melayu/Malayan Pineapple Industry Board. Where the Agency is
harvesting pineapple then do the canning to make it more durable so it can
be exported to different countries. In line with the development of the
industry, the Agency's name was changed to Lembaga Perindustrian
Nanas Malaysia/ Dewan Industri Nanas Malaysia in 1992 (Law-105-
revision 1990) under the Ministry of Primary Industries.

On 29 May 1996, the Cabinet made the decision to abolish the Board
of pineapple, and its functions were transferred to the Ministry of
agriculture, MARDI and FAMA. The removal practice was carried out
gradually for about 3 years in accordance with the dissolution of the
Pineapple Industry Act 1957 (revised 1990).

Canning pineapple commercially started by Chinese-Singaporean

community. Before any other commodities appeared, the pineapple
industry was the main revenue to the economy of the country. In 1957,
Lembaga Perusahaan Nanas Tanah Melayu (LPNTM) was established
based on the pineapple industry Act 1957, which is currently known as
Lembaga Perindustrian Nanas Malaysia (LPNM)/Dewan Industri Nanas
Malaysia that runs a role to manage and develop the Malaysian pineapple

Canning pineapple Industry in Malaysia is the second highest export

after the watermelon in the tropical fruit category. This industry plays a
role in contributing to the country’s economy and providing job
opportunities directly in the farm iand cultivation Industries, and indirectly
in the transportation and manufacturing Industries. With the existence of

those responsible institutions, Malaysia was able to produce high-quality

products that can survive in the market.

The pineapple industry was also supported by the Malaysia

Government in the land development policy aspect. The agricultural sector
is given a priority by the Government through the implementation of
industrial development and support programs. Several strategies have been
outlined based on long-term planning. LPNM/MPIB is foucing on the
clearing of the new land and increasing productivity and also dealing with
a scarcity of fruits supply faced by the factory.

In Malaysia, there are many fruit orchards which is teaming up with

FAMA (Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority), which is a marketing
agency under the Ministry of agriculture and Industri Asas Tani Malaysia.
FAMA was established on September 30, 1965, for the purpose of
supervising, coordinating, organizing and developing marketing
agricultural products in Malaysia, including import and export. The
Agricultural products that is included under the supervision of FAMA are
vegetables, fruits, grains, herbs, farm, and aquaculture. In the sector of
fruits, FAMA served to market various types of fruit plantation results, one
of the fruits that FAMA market is pineapple.

One of the farms that is in cooperation with FAMA and then

empowered by LPNM is the one that is owned by Mr. Saroji located in
Kampong Raja Musa, Selangor. Before, this village was known as
Pineapple Village because pinapples are the main commodity that mainly
planted by local community in this village. This pinapple farms were first
planted by Mr. Saroji’s father who was the first generation, which later
followed by Mr. Saroji himself as the second generation. This village is
also known as Java Village because the majority of the villagers are
Javanese who are originated from Indonesia who have lived in Malaysia
for a long time.

The farm cooperates with FAMA with a method called contract field
method, which means an agreement among supplier and producers in a
way FAMA guarantees the market through a direct-purchase which based
on the terms and condition that has been agreed, or FAMA manages to
become the facilitator *to the department? that guides participants who are
directly involved with the marketers, where the farmers have to provide
products in which their specifications has been set out in the agreement

A. Location

Figure 01. Location of Kampong Raja Musa

Mr. Saroji’s farm located in Kampung Raja Musa near the Ijok
Selangor Malaysia, which is a place where the author conducts the
Internship, is not really far from Kuala Lumpur that is well-known as the
capital city and also one of the business centre within the country. It only
takes about 30 minutes to find the Kampong Raja Musa from there. Since
it is nearby Kuala Lumpur, this location becomes strategic enough to be
made as agricultural business sector. Mr. Saroji’s farm has a total area of

approximately 2 hectares of plantation land and this was inherited from his

B. Management of the company

LPNM (Lembaga Perindustrian Nanas Malaysia) is an Instituion

with the organizational structure that is divided into several divisions. This
Institution is headed by a Director, assisted by the Deputy Director of
Design and Development, and also the Deputy Director of Operation. And
then there are few other divisions led by The Head of Divisions. They are:

a. Crop Expansion and development division

b. Strategic Planning Division
c. Marketing & Agro-Based Industry Division
d. Management Service Division
e. Licensing & Inspectorate Division
f. Engineering Division
g. Product Development and Biotechnology Division
h. Pineapple Technology Development Division
i. Internal Audit Unit
j. Integrity Unit
k. Corporate Communications Unit
l. State Office

Figure 02. Carta Organisasi Lembaga Perindustrian Nanas Malaysia

Besides, in the business field that is run by Mr. Saroji, Mr. Saroji
acted as The Chairman and only has one employee who assists him,
starting from planting the pinapples until harvesting them. The reason why
he only needs one employee because in the work Mr. Saroji has already
been using a machine (tractor) as a tool to make his job easier. All the local
community in this Raja Musa village, is the family of Mr. Saroji, who are
also pineapple farmers.

C. The scope of BusiSness

The Division is responsible for providing support to other divisions

under LPNM in making planning LPNM activities by providing
information as well as the latest industry data. The Division is also

responsible for carrying out the activities of market development and

promotion to ensure that the market share of fresh pineapple and cans can
be enhanced or maintained in the eyes of the world.

1. Provide support to other divisions in the preparation of planning

and preliminary survey before performing an activity.
2. Act as Coordinator for the work of the preparation of the working
papers LPNM development projects to be delivered to the Central
3. Provide reports of the progress of the implementation of
development programmes and assessment thereon.
4. Provides information and statistics about the data and pineapple
industry for use in management.
5. In charge of development in the promotion activities of fresh
pineapple and cans pineapple.
6. Responsible for registering and issue a certificate to the exporter
the exporter agent pineapple for the purpose of exporting pineapple
products abroad.

Malaysia also famous for producing quality pineapple cans yellow

golden. Pineapple Malaysia has characteristics that are different from
competitors and potential for enhanced quality. Currently, 95% of the
production on canned pineapple is for the export market and the surplus of
5% is for the domestic market while fresh pineapple contributed 3% for
the export market and 70% for the domestic market. Singapore is the
traditional export markets for fresh pineapple and followed by West Asia.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Brunei was Amiriah and Hong


A. Main Program

1. The development of the company

Kampong Raja Musa in Selangor, Malaysia since long ago to now

known as Pineapple village, in this village, there is an awful lot of
plantation with different commodities. One of the famous and biggest
commodities in this plantation than past to the present, namely the
pineapple plantation. Mr. Saroji has 2 hectares of land is divided into 1
hectare of land with a total of 15.000 fruit with different varieties. While
the 1 hectare of used for growing pineapple fruit with the total 17.250
fruit. Pineapple plantation belonging Mr. Saroji is planted by many
variants of the pineapple, one of them as much as 800 types of pineapple
fruit typical of village morris planted in his plantation. The beginning of
this plantation belonged to Mr. Saroji father then handed over this business
to Mr. Saroji until now this business has continued to evolve since 10
years ago started by Mr. Saroji. Many types of pineapple seeds are taken
from Philippine. As many as 20 types of pineapple there are swamp
pineapple, gandul, N19, morris, yankee, Josephine, MB2, etc. Pineapple
fruit seedlings MB2 is new pineapple fruit seedlings planted in Mr. Saroji
plantation, this is the new type of fruit are grown for 6 years. This is
pineapple seedlings MB2 seeds have the most expensive price among
other types of pineapple seedlings, namely the price range between RM
1,50 - RM 2. This includes pineapple fruit most warmly on the market. In
this plantation, Mr. Saroji planted the pineapple seeds in 2 ways: 1. Single,
this type of planting is just planting the seeds of the pineapple. 2. The
Mixture (Integration), this type of cultivation planting fruit commodities
include palm, banana, and pineapple in one land. The type of planting fruit
mixed (integration) is done Mr. Saroji with how to plant palm fruit first.

While waiting for the results of the palm for 4 years to bear, Mr. Saroji
palm plants to intervene by planting pineapple on the sides. This became
the income of Mr. Saroji for planting palm is waiting for the results.

An example of such integration on planting figure 02.

Figure 03. Planting of Integration System

In developing his business growing Mr. Saroji doesn’t work on its

own, but he has a lot of relations of cooperation with various government
agencies such as LPNM and FAMA. Both of these organizations were

instrumental in the development of businesses belonging to Mr. Saroji,

besides that it also plays a role in improving the quality and the quality of
the results of Mr. Saroji plantation.

2. The role of LPNM (Lembaga Perindustrian Nanas


When joining LPNM Mr. Saroji awful lot getting extension

associated with the planting of the fruit is good and effective and in
accordance with SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) from the start of
planting until harvesting process. The system of cooperation of Mr. Saroji
with LPNM done with training delivery how to plant pineapples in order
to produce quality fruit pineapple fruit so that it can compete in the global
market. This has been a boon for LPNM because it can boost earnings
through the export of pineapple fruit produced by a member who has been
granted the extension and sold to the world market.

Agribusiness enterprise development within the framework of the

pineapple and challenges facing competition in the free trade era, then the
market demands products that are of high quality, uniformity of results,
sustainability, safe against health, and eco-friendly. To anticipate the need
for a guideline or standard made a reference in the development of agri-
commodities pineapple. There is a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)
on the farming process that includes pineapple cultivation to post-harvest.
The application of the SOP is as follows:

A. Planting Process Pineapple Fruit

In this plantation pineapple seeds cannot grow when not paying

attention to three fundamental to the growth of pineapple, Air (a), Baja
(b) dan Cahaya (c) as of the step for planting pineapple according to
SOP (Standard Operating Procedure):

a) Area Preparation
In General almost all types of land used for agriculture suitable to
grow the pineapple. Although a plant like a pineapple, more suitable
on this type of soil antecedent contains fertile, loose sand, and many
contain organic ingredients as well as lime content, is low. The
pineapple plantations on the property of Mr. Saroji it, pineapple grown
in peat. Where is the peat are sour.
It turns out that the cultivation of the fruit of the pineapple in the
peat has a good prospect because the resulting fruit has a flavor that is
more sweets. In fact other than pineapple plants when grown in the
land of sour fruit and disorder will experience growth of yet another
case with pineapple fruit. In order for the results of the growth of
pineapple fruit being the maximum necessary settings in the system of
cultivation, as for the distance required to plant the seed of the fruit of
the pineapple that is 90 x 60 cm x30 with line 2 system in order to
facilitate the treatment of pineapple.
There is a difference in implementing soft and mineral soil area.
Peat Soil
a. Flow
1. A drains flow should be built initially to lower the water
level for the peat soil condition in Malaysia which constantly
traps water.
Type of drain Measurement (m)

Main 1.5 x 1.2 x 1.2

Second 1.2 x 0.9 x 0.9

Farm 0.9 x 0.9 x 0.6

2. Excessive flow will increase plant root decay and the

growth of the tree will be hampered.

Therefore, plant seeds fruit pineapple requires water in the

growth as well as to assist the process of absorption of nutrient

elements that can be dissolved in it. However, the moisture content

in the soil should not be too much or does not tarnish (Pooled).
This should be considered such as aeration and drainasenya must
be good, because the plants are submerged would be very
susceptible to rotting roots so need a trench to make the water flow
so that the pineapple plant is not submerged. In addition to the
water plant pineapple fruit also should not be a shortage of

b. Cutting and Cleaning of Area

1. Done in the hot season, 3-4 months and the wood will dry
c. Road & Lane Construction
1. Large pieces of wood are being cut into 5m long, arranged
vertically on suggested roads as a layer of support. Laterite is
compressed into 10-20 cm thick on top of it.
2. Lanes are constructed from laterite layers 10-20 cm thick
and 3-4 m wide.
b) Preparation of planting Components
A pineapple tree can be planted from sections such as the
head, root stem, root ventilation hole or soil.
1. Seed Options
Choose seeds from the main tree which contain the
following characteristics:-
1. Fertilized and healthy tree
2. Large fruit
3. Short stem and strong
4. A single head
Choices can increase production from 10-15%
2. Seed Intake
Collect the seeds after achieving a size of 30-60 cm
long which is around 4 months from the plucking date.
3. Seed Classification
Separate seeds according to the following sizes:
Small : 30cm
Medium : 45cm

Large : 60cm
4. Storing Seeds
When it is needed to be kept before planting, storage
steps should be followed to prevent damage and being
1. Seed is arranged in a layer with the position of the
base turned upwards.
2. Kept in a safe and well-ventilated place.
3. Ensure that storing is not done in more than 1
5. Seed Treatments
If there is a need to eliminate insects or algae, the seed
must be dipped in a concentrated insect or algae poison.
Insect poison : 24ml Malathion + 18l (4 gallons) water
Algae poison : Benlate 75C Concentration
c) Cultivation
The main or mixed cultivation system is much dependant on
the economy and environmental factors.
Each system is advised to be cultivated in a twin-row
1. Cultivation density
Cultivation density is dependent on the implementation
objective of the project, the type of seed and cultivation system.
In general, the main cultivation density for each seed is
43,500 trees/hectare or 17,424 trees/acre with a plantation
length of 90cm x 60cm x 30cm
High cultivation density, > 50,000 tree/hectare (20,000
tree/acre) fulfills the requirements of product increase.
2. Planting Method
A stake wood tied by a string or wire is used as a line
marker. The string or rope is marked for measuring the length
of plantation along the line.

Ditugalkan to build wooden tugal crop during the span

strap hole. The depth of hole 10-15cm is adapted to the size of
the seed of 30-60 cm long.
Root cultivation of the same size in the same area. One
root for each hole, soil surrounding is pressed in order to make
the root unmoved.
3. Planting Season
Small size – cultivation in the damp season.
Large size – cultivation for the whole year.
As for the planting of a pineapple fruit in doing is by
way of closing a pineapple plant with plastic before inserting
the pineapple into the ground, Mr. Saroji dipped pineapple fruit
seedlings with toxic toadstool and pesticides. It is aimed so that
the seeds of pineapple fruit is protected from insects. But
before in the lid with plastic, pineapple gave fertilizer food as
much as 20 kg. When the leaves have reached 30-40 strands,
then the age of pineapple can be estimated at 7-8 next month,
caregiving of ethral in the central part of the pineapple fruit
shoots are done every day for a month with the 7-8 way was
sprinkled. As for the variant of the pineapple fruit grows
fastest-namely the types of variants of Morris and Josephine
because, at the age of 12 months, the fruit of the pineapple can
already be harvested.
d) Weed Control
A few characteristics of soft soil in Malaysia encourage
certain types of weed growth.
1. High ability to trap water
2. High water level
3. The high amount of annual rain
4. High organic contents and low pH suitable with species of
certain weed.
1. Practice Control Culture Method:

Weed control by using a hand, pulling, cutting, digging and

2. Chemical Method:
Various brands of traditional poison require a control step.
3. Weed Control After Planting
1) Paraquat 50-100ml/18 liter of water to destroy grass
which is merely visible.
2) Glyphosate 80-100ml liter of water for tall grass. If
necessary, should be repeated in 4-6 weeks later.
Weed Control After Planting
Use premixed weed poison and is sprayed across the surface of the soil.

Poison Rate per 18l Rotation/ Control

Brand of water Cultivation Period(mth)
KROVAR 1 120g 2 times 4-6
COMBI 80 120g 3-4times 1 1/2-3
KIMEX 120g 3-4times 1 1/2-3
A few weeks after it is sprayed, a few weeds starts to
grow. With that, replanting the grass must be done before the
weed grows flowers or produces fruit/seedlings.

e) Fertilization
A fertilization, schedule, and rate of fertilization general
formula for pineapple cultivation on peat soil have been

f) Blossming Flow (Hormone)

A pineapple tree in a normal situation experiences self bloom
on the 12-18 month after it is planted.

A few environmental factors such as temperature,

daytime period and the amount of sunlight reflection are able to
trigger the formation of the natural flower.
The rapid growth rate which is the result of the effects of
excessive nitrogen fertilization, water flow or rain will prevent
blossoming of flowers.
Pineapple is a plantation which is aware of the chemical
growth control ingredients.

Usage of Blossom Hormone

1. NAA Pill
1. 1 seed/tree
2. Inserted directly in the pineapple stem.
2. NAA Liquid (Plano fix)
1. 4.5 ml Planofix/18l water
2. 50 ml concentration is sprayed or poured on the center of
each tree.
3. Ethephon (Ethrel)v
1. 30 ml ETHREL + 180g Urea + 18l water
2. 40-50ml concentration of each tree. Sprayed or poured on
the center of each tree.
4. Asetilena (Calcium Karbaid)
1. 200g Calcium Karbaid + 18l water
2. 50 ml tree concentration. Sprayed or poured to the center
of the tree stem.
5. Flow Time
1. Night time is the most effective period.
2. The most suitable time is during early morning and late
6. Characteristics of Tree Suitability
1. Healthy and fertilized.

2. Have 35-40 functional fresh leaves.

3. 1 month after fertilization.
The success of blossoming flow is evaluated
through the blossoming percentage which occurs after 45-60
The blossom percentage calculation is conducted
when the pineapple tree stem has produced a red coloured
g) Fruit size manipulation
2-(3 chlorophenoxy) propionic acid or in short CPA
(3-CP) is a type of chemical hormone to generate fruit growth
especially for kv.gandul. In the market, an example of this
hormone is FRUITONE CPA.

1. Purpose of Usage
1) Increase fruit size.
2) Assist the top section growth of the
pineapple thus motivating the fruit growth.
3) Make the fruit skin thicker to prevent
damage during carrying and transferring to the
4) Compress the pineapple fillings to prevent
2. Rate of Usage
1) 1ml CPA (3-CP) + 1 litre of water
2) 50ml concentration of each seed by spraying
the whole section of the fruit when the flowers are
almost gone.

h) Harvesting

In general, pineapple fruit can begin harvested when

these fruits starts to ripe especially on its skin colour. Ripen
fruits are good quality and market guarantee.
Maturity Indeks
The Maturity Index is a guide which refers to skin
colour change which also changes the internal characteristics
of the fruit fillings and level of acid sugar contents.
Maturity Index (Gandul Pineapple)
1. Colour of braktea changes from red to pale white.
2. Colour of fruitlet changes from red to blackish
3. Between 146-152 days after the date of blossoming

Late harvesting will affect fruit quality. When 25% of

the fruit turns yellow, the fruit filling has become ferment and
is unsuitable to be canned.
