  1. Net Income/ Month = RM 247.00. Is it too little?
    Can you tell me how many harvest per 3-years period?
    We have 1.5 acres of rubber estate and another bigger size, planning to go for banana tissue culture in the future.What type of PISANG - Berangan or Tanduk(banana chips) is better?. Where can I find manufacturers of chips factory?

    Please advice?
