The development of classification systems for suitability of soils for rubber cultivation in Malaysia is discussed. The early system (1972) was non-parametric and based on number and types of soil limitations. Later systems (1975, 1982) were parametric and included the influence of climate. The characteristic features of these systems are accounted for. On the basis of current evidence, a land suitability system for rubber cultivation is recommended.
