    I am living in Thailand and have just purchased land, I would like to know what would be the best to grow for future investment Rubber trees or Palm oil trees, I will retire in 8 years and will look after my investment myself.
    Any info welcome.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Thialand has enough rubber and palm oil plantations why not try raising endangered plant speices or pigmy elephants also threatened by the palm oil industry's unchecked deforestation of its natural forests.

    There is a world shortage of Rubber and when the oil runs out I am sure clean bio diesel will be fine in your car!.
