Having recognized its potential as a major growth area, Lalan plans to become one of the largest producers of Citronella oil and value added products in Sri Lanka.

 

Lalan is cultivating Citronella in all lands of low soil depth within their plantations, creating a potential plantation area of over 500 acres. Growing Citronella for oil extraction will enable the company to reap optimum benefit from marginal lands that are not suitable for other crops.

 

Uses of Citronella:

 

  • Medicinal balms
  • Insect repellant
  • Cosmetics
  • Essential oils
