dc.description.abstract "Until recently, 'Scientific Forestry' on forest lands in India had meant raising trees in order to get sustained yield of timber for markets. Right from the colonial days up to 1988, emphasis was laid on the conversion of 'low' value mixed forests into 'high' value plantations of commercial species like teak, eucalyptus and bamboo. As late as 1976, a high powered government commission, called the National Commission on Agriculture (NCA) recommended, 'Production of industrial wood would have to be the raison d'etre for the existence of forests. It should be project-oriented and commercially feasible from the point of view of cost and return'. The commission however recommended fuelwood and fodder plantations through social forestry on village and private lands." en_US
