Oil palm is one of the major crop producing in Malaysia.

The aim of this research study was to identify the implementation of good agricultural practices (GAP) among dependent smallholders and to determine the relationship of good agricultural practices (GAP) and yield performances. Data was analyzed by using the software Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) through descriptive analysis, reliability analysis, correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis.
