  • Impacts of intensive management practices on rubber (Hevea brasiliensis) farms (e.g., land clearance, fertilization, and rubber tapping) have not been adequately investigated. In this study, soil was taken from fields of grass (before rubber plantation), immature rubber (before tapping), and mature rubber (after tapping) at a tropical farm in Hainan, China. Soil organic matter, plant nutrients, cations, and soil pH were determined. Rubber cultivation resulted in significant decline of soil… CONTINUE READING
