The agarwood can grow every area of Thailand. But if have to grow at flood cages, must have
lifting rut higher than water level at least 1.5 Metre . The best area is foothills, small hill or ventilating water convenient area. But if area has the flood caged for long time, when agarwood grow will yellow die because agarwood like humidity but do not like wet.
Character of soil that Agarwood can grows up fast
Agarwood can glow up in the soil that have PH since 4.5-7.0 For checking soil quality, can consult Doctor soil of every part of Thailand or contact Land Development Center. The best soil for agrawood is laterite , especially the laterite mixes the combination of clay, mix the fat clay, next be combanication of clay, the combanication of clay mixes the fat clay, the combanication of clay mixes the sand and bad most be sandy soil. Especially area that have sandy white soil, rough sand, finely sand which have ground deep more than 3 Meter is not improperly grow the agarwood. Because glow up slow, easy fall, the trunk not completed, tottering. Therefore before grow, must be consider soil specification.
Grow Patterns ( 1 Rai = 1,600 SQM)
- Distance 2 x 2 Meter
This type is high cost but get highest benefit. Between rows can grow the plants which give
benefit annual year such as Chilies, Eggplant or Vegetable but growing with by no chemical.
This type is suitable for good cash flow.
2. Distance 2 x 4 Meters
This is growing 2 Meters between seeding. Between rows is 4 Meters. Between rows can grow banana, papaya , etc. 1 Rai can glow 200 trees. Suitable for medium cash flow.
- Diatance 4 x 4 Meters
- Jostle Grow
- Soil Digging: Have to dig soil deep 50 cm. wide 50 cm.
Soil Dig by Machine

Soil Diging by Human
1. Fertilizer Insertion: Must be mixes cow shit with soil by 1:5 ratio and put at the bottom till high at 30 cm. (Cow shit must be dry and sterilized)
- Plantation Agarwood : Good agarwood seeding must be 8 Months age up or at high
should do hole deep about 5 cm. for keeping water. Try to tightly press soil around bag to protect soil go down. It may cause damage root.
Mostly agarwood have 2 branches at the top. Should be cut branch which have leaf under.
After that will have twig around trunk. Need to keep it for photosynthesize and
provide nourishment. Trunk will big and completed. After agarwood big and tall then
slowly cut out by balance to trunk. If without cutting, trunk will short, more branch and
resin encourage is no effort.
In summer or no raining time, should be give water 1 time/ 3-5 days follow environment.
Fertilize After growed by 1 month, should use cow shit about 1 kg/ tree scatter around and away from base about 10 cm. Then cover by soil to protect cow shit loosen. After 3 months, give cow shit again depends on trunk condition and grow area condition.
Most enemy of agarwood grow is “Thief”. Because in deep jungle, they still can go to
steal. Next are worm, aphis, fungus, termite and kind of bug which can drill, bite and
suck in ground.
