Samak gives wrong information about eucalyptus
Quote "As a farmer from Australia, I do know about eucalyptus trees and their effect on farming. PM Samak says, "The roots will also act as fertiliser for the rice."
This is total nonsense.
Eucalyptus trees suck the guts out of the land. The roots release a substance that inhibits the growth of other plants; not even grass grows around eucalyptus trees.
So where does he get his information? From businessmen who are looking for a quick return, without caring for the future and the environment? This is misleading information.
