Adaptive Research Unit

This unit uses both ”Top-down” and “Bottom-up” approaches to refine the technologies available in the large-scale plantation sector in favour of smallholders and plan the future research to cater the smallholder requirements, respectively. Among the research activities of the unit, developing rubber based farming systems particularly to the non-traditional areas whilst characterizing the socio economic conditions of smallholdings is in top priority.
