Malaysian Bioeconomy Development Corporation (Bioeconomy Corporation) implemented the project under the Bioeconomy Community Development Programme (BCDP) – thanks to the MSI Fund that was approved by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI).
The fund was used to cover the cost of training 10 members of the Persatuan, in addition to the construction of a shade house and a cutting house, purchase of equipment, as well as purchase of 6,000 high-yielding breeds of Kacip Fatimah.
The project, which ran from 1 August 2016 to 30 April 2017, also enabled members of the Persatuan to acquire the skills to mass produce Kacip Fatimah through vegetative propagation by cutting method.
