Oil Palm Research Institute Featured

The CSIR-Oil Palm Research Institute was initially established as a division under the CSIR-Crop Research Institute in 1964 to take over the functions of the defunct West Africa Institute for Oil Palm Research (WAIFOR) which was responsible for provision of oil palm planting materials and research support to the West African Anglophone Countries. It was upgraded to a centre in 1979 and became a full-fledged institute in 1988 with the mandate to conduct demand-driven research aimed at providing scientific and technological support for the development of the oil palm industry. In 1992, the institute was additionally mandated to carry out research into coconut in general and Cape St. Paul’s Wilt Disease (CSPWD) in particular. The institute’s oil palm programme is based at Kusi, near Kade in the Eastern Region while the Coconut Programme is located at Sekondi-Takoradi in the Western Region. The institute is poised to become a center of excellence in oil palm and coconut research and a major supplier of improved planting materials of oil palm, coconut and relevant technologies in the sub-region.
