Dr Upul Subasinghe

Sadaharitha Plantations Limited, the nation’s foremost commercial forestry plantations, recently released a landmark study on the possibility of growing Walla Patta in home gardens.

The National Research Council and the Department of Forestry and Environmental Science of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura conducted the research to dispel the baseless beliefs prevalent in the media on Walla Patta.
The study also focused on the rampant destruction of Walla Patta plants that endangers their existence. The Sri Lankan Government too has supported this research.

The main objective of this research is to assess the feasibility of developing and growing a successful Walla Patta commercial plantation that produces the valuable Agarwood resins within a decade and creating awareness among the general public of opportunities in Walla Patta cultivation.
