Hari, Development Officer, Rubber Board will answer the queries from rubber growers from 10 am to 1 pm on October 30, 2019. The number is 0481 – 2576622. At present, number of holdings are lying untapped owing to many reasons. The aim of adoption is to increase rubber production by starting regular tapping in the untapped areas.
The Rubber Board promoted companies and Rubber Producers’ Societies can help the growers in many ways for the adoption process. The service of the members of the Tapper Bank can be utilised for tapping in many holdings. This will help to address the problem of shortage of tappers to a certain extent.
