Plantation industry is a well-established sector in the country whilst forestry and forest management is identified as an essential component of sustainable agricultural production and environmental management. However, the potential of plantation industry is much more than the level it exists at present and the lack of proper management seems to be the main hindrance for the development of the industry. Furthermore, an integrated approach to land use and environmental management is an important concern in plantation and forest management. The suggested module addresses the issues related to existing problems of the plantation industry and approaches to overcome these problems whilst providing an integrated approach to environmental and land management using recently introduced concepts of agroforestry and forestry. The courses of the module have been designed to impart knowledge and skills required for plantation management and forestry. After successful completion of the courses of this module students will have the ability to manage a plantation more efficiently and use forestry concepts in land and environmental management
