Siat is committed through its policies not to cultivate on fragile soils. This includes conservation areas (such as HCV, HCS, swamp, marshy and riparian areas), peat soils and high organic soils (such as Histosols), fragile and marginal soils (such as sandy soils), and slopes above 20° (to prevent soil erosion).
Siat installs cover plants on all its oil palm plantations to limit erosion and improve the soil fertility.
Siat is committed to restoring areas that could have been degraded in the past and to maintaining or increasing the fertility of cultivated soils (for example by returning to the fields organic matter taken during harvesting).
Siat conducts regular surface water, soil and leaves analyses and has contracts with international experts to establish its fertilization programs.
Siat has developed and applies integrated Pest Management (IPM) on all its plantations to rationalize the use of chemicals and avoid soil pollution. No product covered by the Rotterdam or Stockholm conventions, nor any class Ia or Ib product on the WHO list are used.
Siat aims to have at least 10% of its surfaces in conservation areas (see the sustainable development report).
