Eucalyptus Plantations
APFDC has raised Eucalyptus Plantations over an area of 57041.74 hectares in the districts of Adilabad, Warangal, Karimnagar, Khammam, East & West Godavari, Nellore, Chittoor, R.R. and Medak Districts of A.P. from 1975 onwards.
Initially, the plantations were raised by raising the seedlings in polybags. These seed origin plantations were not effective in terms of growh and yields due to unknown origin of seed and their resistance to diseases. In order to achieve much higher productivity APFDC has been raising Eucalyptus clonal plantations from 1994 onwards by selecting the proven clones and raised the seedlings which have good potential. The average survival percentage of these clonal plantations is about 90 by end of 6th year and the yield per ha. is 70-80 MTs in high rainfall areas and 40-50 MTs in low rainfall areas.
The following are the extents of Eucalyptus Clonal Plantations raised by APFDC Ltd., as on 31/10/2012
