Cultivation of Agar: Transforming Economy of North East India

A crop that has no equals in the field of natural incense, Agarwood is known as the wood of the gods; a product of the religious and cultural aroma. Agarwood is an economically important and fast-growing evergreen tree species native to North East India, creating a paradigm shift to explore new dynamics of access and benefit-sharing. Apart from India, the Agar tree’s distribution ranges from the foothills of the Himalayas to Papua New Guinea.

Aquilaria malaccensis or Agar Tree isn’t just an aromatic plant, it’s a substratum of economic prosperity in the North-Eastern region in India. Now, after Assam, the Tripura government has taken all-out initiatives to encourage farmers for commercial cultivation of agar.

The government has stated that Agarwood species have a huge potential of creating an Economic Revolution in Tripura after Rubber, Bamboo, and other major forestry crops.
