Oil Palm is typically grown in tropical lowland regions over large areas.
The tree requires deep soil and stable high temperatures 30°C – 32°C for optimum productivity.
Temperatures below 20°C will severely reduce the growth of both species, while the African oil palm will also suffer a reduction in growth at temperatures above 40°C.
