Oil palms are widely cultivated everywhere in Malaysia for the oil obtained from their fruits. Oil palms grow easily in the tropical climate of Malaysia and have a high productivity, with 7250 litres of oil per hectare per year. In 1995 Malaysia produced 51% of the world's palm oil. The downside is that large tracts of virgin forest have been converted to palm oil monocultures, with a negative impact on biodiversity and animal life.
