Effect of Tree Density on Growth, Yield and Profitability of Rubber (hevea Brasiliensis Muell.arg.) in Plantations


Three rubber (Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg.) clones, PB 86, RRIC 101 and RRIC103, were tested for their performance under six tree densities viz: 400, 533, 666, 771, 800 and 920 trees/ha. The clone PB 86 was significantly a slow grower than the other two clones and had a lower percentage of tappable trees throughout. Tree density has influenced the growth… (More)
