The establishment of The Rubber Research of Malaysia (RRIM) in 1925 has started the research and development in various aspects related to rubber improvement in Malaysia. Many improvement programmes have been carried out to develop  high yielding rubber clones and favourable characters such as low disease incident and wind resistance clones. For almost 90 years,  RRIM has introduced the rubber planting recommendations to benefit rubber growers, plantations and smallholdings with the latest observations, evaluations and results obtained from the experimental trials. Rubber planting recommendations produced by RRIM has become the main reference for rubber growers over the years to gather the latest information of high yielding clones that available in Malaysia. There are continuously updated information related to rubber clones presented in the planting recommendations but prior to 1957 there are not much information disseminated through RRIM's internal reports and articles. Therefore, this review summarize the overview of RRIM rubber planting recommendations since 1925 and its impacts to the rubber growers in Malaysia.
