agricultural project station was set up in 1969 as a demonstration
site for planting and researching flowering plants, temperate
fruit trees, vegetables and other crops under the patronage
of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Primarily a research
centre, it focuses on developing a wider variety of marketable
produce for the local hill tribes, which were previously cash-poor
and dependent on growing illegal opium as their major source
of income. The organic methods employed by the Project have
had great success. Such non-tropical fruit as strawberries
and raspberries, peaches, apples and plumbs and vegetables
like beans and asparagus, have all done well.
