The Agriculture Heritage Park: Rubber Plot

At the edge of the fruit orchard of the Agricultural Heritage Park in Putrajaya is the Rubber Plot.

This place was the original rubber research plot itself contains 9 acres and visitor can find 71 rubber clones with different criteria such as trunk size, branches, bark and amount of latex produced.

Mosquito repellent is advised around this area as I was stung by countless of mosquitoes here.

The history and heritage of the rubber trees in Malaysia are well preserved here. The map above shows the rubber clonal plots in this park
