Abstract The effects of planting density on growth and development of rubber ( Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg., clone RRIC 100) and banana ( Musa spp. cv. Kolikuttu) were examined to determine the optimum planting density of banana when grown in combination with rubber. The experiment comprised five treatments, sole crop rubber (R), sole crop banana (B) and three intercropping treatments consisting of an additive series of one (BR), two (BBR) and three (BBBR) rows of banana to one row of rubber… CONTINUE READING
