On the area of 947 Rai, there are furrows of local vegetables, such as Krachiao, Phakkat Ya, Som Mong, Phak Wan Pa. Local herbs and more than 100 species of fragrant flowers are gathered here. During the cool season, colourful temperate flowers will be grown as well.
In the past, this area was an abandoned area under the responsibility of the Department of Land. Later, the Departmenty of Agriculture was allowed to develop the area for the academic purpose. Many plants were grown for the research for the better life of Thai farmers.
The success of the research centre is the new tomato species for making sauce. This species gives the best yield and was later promoted among the Thai farmers to grow it. Some longan species are also planted here and the result is quite good as they grow well in Northeast Thailand.
You can also purchased many products from Thai herbs. For example, guava juice, lemon grass water, passion fruit juice, tomato juice. Visitors can try them all at the office of Research Centre.
