Rubber Plantation Sector

Rubber plantation industry has recorded commendable progress during the last 5 decades in the total area of cultivation, production and productivity of natural rubber. Though this achievement is appreciable considering that major part of the production is from nearly one million small holdings with an average holding size 0.57ha, majority are not in a position to meet the quality production standards of the global market. Knowledge and adoption of   scientific and cost effective techniques are imperative to face the challenges ahead. The increased demand for natural rubber necessitates its increased production and this could be possible only by increasing the area and enhancing the productivity of existing plantation. The Division focuses on imparting scientific knowledge for cost effective rubber cultivation practices to achieve increased production and productivity at reduced cost without compromising quality. Latest location specific research recommendations in the fields of crop improvement, crop protection and crop management  and latex harvest were given due thrust in the programs with a view to maximizing production and optimum use of available land and ancillary income generation for the beneficiaries
