Rubber Tree Types for rubber tree farms in Thailand
« on: July 21, 2012, 07:36:31 AM »
The most common rubber trees found in Thailand for the purpose of farming are  RRIT251 and RRIM600.

RRIM600
  • Takes 7 years before they are mature enough to produce a yield.
  • Has a longer life span than the RRIT251

RRIT251
  • Produces a high yield
  • Grows much faster and can start tapping in about 5 years
  • More susceptible to disease

I hope that others will add their opinions of these trees.
