This is a hands-on, practical guide to describe physical bunch and oil analysis of oil palm bunches. Bunch and oil analysis laboratories are set up at oil mills to assess production, yield potential of plantations and oil extraction rates relative to targets. The higher the oil yields the planting material produces, the less land that is needed to achieve a specific level of production, hence helping in the sustainability of the crop.
