TEAK (Tectona grandis):

 

The A.P.F.D.C. has raised Teak Plantations by converting the mature and over mature Eucalyptus seed origin plantations especially in high rain fall and productive areas like Rajahmundry and Eluru during the period from 2001-02 to 2016-17.  Accordingly, 824.70 ha of Teak plantations have been raised so far.

Due to its long gestation period, Teak planting was restricted to limited extent in high rainfall zone area of Maredumilli of Rajahmundry division besides maintenance of the old Teak plantations already raised.

Teak was raised in block planting as well as line planting along the inspection paths and peripheries of Eucalyptus and Bamboo plantations in a single or multiple rows.  The teak stumps / bag plants which are well grown and pest resistant are used for planting. The planting is done on receipt of soaking rains at an espacement of 2M x 2M in 30cm cube pits / crow bar holes based on planting stock duly treating the stumps / bag plants as the case may be.

Coffee plantations: A boon to tribal people
Coffee plantations raised in 4,000-odd hectares by the Andhra Pradesh Forest Development Corporation (APFDC) in seven mandals in the Agency area is a great boon to tribal women and men.

High Level Eucalyptus Clonal Plantation
APFDC had been raising Industrial Plantations of Eucalyptus and Bamboo so far covering an area of 48,000 ha and 10,000 ha respectively. The plantations raised through seed in the past have given an average yield of only 10 MT/ha at the rotation age of 8/9 years as against projected yields of 40 MT/ha. The yield from subsequent rotations is only ⅓ rd to ¼th of first rotation.
