Project: Integrated management of inter-rows in rubber tree plantations via food crops cultivation

project duration
01-OCT-10 – 30-SEP-10
For smallholders, intercropping food crops and rubber trees could be an interesting way of managing rubber trees' inter-row. This project aims at improving land-use efficiency and management in young rubber tree plantations by guiding farmers into producing sufficient food crops without constraining future rubber production. A better understanding of interactions between food crops and rubber tree is a prerequisite to achieve this.
