As well as specialising in the establishment and management of plantations, Burman Bioenergy is also able to offer a range of services to existing plantations that are not achieving optimal production yields.
At the forefront of this range of services is the use of our proprietary crop specific liquid microbial inoculation which can be injected directly into the root system of established trees, vastly improving both yield and productive life of existing plantations.
This is based on the same crop specific, customised microbial inoculation added at the nursery stage in the establishment of all our highest yielding plantations.
- Injection needle is inserted up to 60cm deep into the soil, close to the roots
- Pulse of air aerates the soil, creating cavities for injecting the liquid microbial inoculation
- The liquid is pumped into a large volume of soil through the cavities
- The microbial fungi begins connecting with the roots and growing a network of fibres which acts as an additional root system, increasing root mass by up to 700 times, delivering more nutrient and moisture to each tree.
A potential increase in production of between 30-40% can be expected.
Just some of the many plantations that can be revitalised through the use of Burman Bioenergy’s proprietary Microbial Inoculation include:
- Black Pepper
- Forestry Trees
- Dragon Fruit
- Jatropha Curcas
- Moringa Oleifera
- Oil Palm
- Papaya(Paw Paw)
- Tea (Camellia)
- Wine Grapes

In response to the large amount of interest received from our recently announced “GPS Guided, Mechanical Planting Technology”, outlined below are some of the key benefits obtained through the use of mechanical planting in plantation establishment.
- Perfect Plant / Row Alignment
This allows mechanisation of weeding, pruning, and harvesting, resulting in considerably lower labour requirements.
- Tree / Branch Development
Exact distance between each tree means that branch development will be uniform, allowing also, consistent yield for each tree. If plantation trees are not planted exactly the same distance apart, branches of both trees can cross, causing alternation of yield where some trees produce larger amounts of branches, but less fruit, meaning lower yields.
- Less Damage to Plants
Planting mechanically guarantees less damage to plants, which means a lower percentage of losses during the plantation establishment.
- Superior Root Development
When planting is mechanically GPS guided, the machine opens a deep ditch in the soil, under the exact place where the plant will be planted. This allows a larger development of the roots as they find the earth broken, also allowing faster growth rates and better plant nutrition, hence an earlier and larger harvest.
- Higher Planting Speed
Higher speed in planting allows plantation establishment and harvesting to be completed sooner, resulting in earlier yield and returns.
- Less Labour Required
Lower manual labour requirement for planting, allows the planting process to be completed faster, with less human error.

Burman BioEnergy is now using GPS assisted mechanical planting technolgy to plant up to 25,000 hectares per month of Jatropha, Millettia and Castor Bean.
The same new technology can be used to achieve planting rates of 10,000 hectares per month when planting Oil Palm and Olive trees.
This technology can greatly assist in the economical supply of Turnkey Planting solutions for the establishment of commercial plantations.
As the seeds / plants receive their first application of fertiliser and irrigation at the point of planting, no setback in growth is incurred and an early first harvest is assured.
Burman Bioenergy is supplying Turnkey Plantation Solutions in Australia, Asia, South America, Central America, North America, Europe and African Countries.

Due to the recently increased demand for oil palm seed from countries with restrictions on the importation of germinated seeds, Burman BioEnergy company ‘Palm Plantations Of Australia’ is now supplying it’s High Yield Oil Palm Seed in non-germinated form.
Palm Plantations Of Australia’s superior Oil Palm seed has been bred from the highest yielding Oil Palms in the world, with superior genetics bred over the past 60 years from the best trees selected for their high yields and early maturity. Palm Plantations seeds will produce a crop within their 2nd year if properly cultivated.

Leading oil palm seed producer and palm oil industry consultant Palm Plantations Of Australia has this week launched a new division dedicated to the research and development and commercial realisation of the Australian “Millettia pinnata” species, as a large scale biofuel plantation crop.
Palm Plantations Of Australia managing director, Neville Burman said “interest in the new species as a biofuel crop has been strong, given it’s wider tolerance to adverse climatic conditions, higher oil yield and greater carbon sink”.
“With our experience in palm oil and jatropha plantations, we are now also committed to the advancement of Millettia pinnata genetics for biofuel production.” Mr Burman said.
Millettia Plantations will supply high yielding Millettia pinnata seedlings for plantation establishment as well as specialised consulting services to help plantations achieve optimum yields.
