Agroforestry:  Strengthening Thai Hua Rubber’s planting materials

In Thailand, Tree Global worked with Thai Hua Rubber, the third largest producer of rubber in Thailand, to establish and improve the quality of the company’s planting material, improve survival rates and increase growth rates and yields

 

In Thailand, even with a conducive growing environment, survival rates are a concern due to poor quality of planting stock, weed pressure, and an extended dry season.  Survival rates for traditional rubber plantings average 60-70%.  Tree Global seedlings achieved survival rates of 95%.
