Rubber Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Tropical Agricultural Sciences (CATASRRI), the only national research center for natural rubber in China, owes its origin to the South China Research Institute of Special Forestry founded in 1954 by the Central Government of China. CATASRRI has since focused its major research on cultivation of rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) and contributed greatly to the development of rubber industry in China. Its recent research initiatives also include oil palm, a tropical perennial crop, deserving special attention driven by the huge edible oil market.
Vision: To be a world-renowned center of excellence in natural rubber research and development for the benefit of the natural rubber industry in China and the world.
Mission: To meet the strategic demands of the natural rubber industry in China by improving its competitiveness and viability through focused R & D innovations and effective transfer of the latest technologies to the stakeholders of interest.
