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.
