Integrated farming under rubber plantation is a new agroforestry practice in Malaysia. It has lately become more important due to the increasing demand for food and raw materials as a result of increasing population and scarcity of land. Interplanting of rattan under rubber can be one of the systems which can solve the problem of insufficient supply of rattan. The system has been introduced in the 1980 s with the aim of maximising land use as well as to ensure sufficient rattan supply to the industry.
