Jerantut district will be the pioneer and largest producer of organic Musang King clones in Pahang.

According to Ahmad Nazlan, the D197 organic Musang King, one of the latest markets to Europe and China, will be pioneered by UTP to be able to generate changes in the local economy and income of the population based on agriculture and tourism sectors.

Jerantut will be the pioneer in the production of D197 organic Musang King durian when the plantation project is developed in this district soon.

Jerantut Member of Parliament, Ahmad Nazlan Idris said, the government will provide 40 hectares of land for the project which will be undertaken by an international plantation company, United Tropical Fruit (UTP).
