Bunch sampling.

Bunch sampling is the harvesting of fresh fruit bunches (FFBs) from oil palm trees. This is done according to standard operating procedures (SOPs), with specific timed intervals between each round of harvesting. During bunch sampling, observations are conducted on the status of the bunches, e.g. fruit colour, number of loose fruits before and after harvesting on the ground, etc. These will correspond to the recoverable oil yield and quality - e.g. free fatty acid content. Good practices are essential to maximize and standardize data capture for oil yield and quality.
