Rain guarding in rubber - contact call centre

Correspondent

Agartala, April 16, 2018: Rubber growers can contact Rubber Board Call Centre to know about rain-guarding in rubber and the precautions to be taken in the harvesting of rubber during rainy season. R. Sathees Chandran, Dy. Rubber Production Commissioner, Rubber Board will answer the questions on the subject on Wednesday 18 April 2018 from 10 am to 1 pm.

The Call Centre number is 0481-2576622.

Rubber trees need to be tapped without interruption during rainy season   to get a sustained income.  To serve the purpose, rubber trees should be rain-guarded before the onset of rainy season. If rainguarding is not done in holdings where low frequency tapping is practiced, yield loss will be high. Precautions are also to be taken while tapping trees during rainy season.

Information about the services of the Board and also technical advice regarding cultivation, production, processing, etc. of rubber can be regularly sought from the Call Centre functioning at its Head Office. The service is available from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm on all working days.
