AbstractFull Text

High-value native timber species are being promoted in reforestation in Southeast Asia. However, slow growth during early establishment, coupled with poor soil fertility, poses challenges for promoting tree planting programs. Field trials were undertaken on agroforestry land in Thailand to examine...
