ResearchSEA – Technology News, Science to Enhance Commercial Plantation Forest. [ Thurs-10th-July-2008]
The increase in global demand for wood requires increase in forest productivity. There is, therefore, a need for a high-yield, faster growth, and short-rotation plantation forests. Thus, a joint research programme between Sarawak Forestry Corporation and UNIMAS was sealed for the development of plantation forests in the State of Sarawak.
