Summer protection of rubber


Agartala, February 27, 2018: As the summer season has started, rubber plants need to be protected from severe heat. The Rubber Board is giving certain recommendations for this which include mulching, use of shading, white washing and fire belts.

Mulching of plant bases is usually done using dried leaves, grass, etc. Mulching is ideal for maintaining soil moisture and soil temperature. This also increases the organic matter content in the soil.

Shade made coconut leaves or gunny bags can prevent small plants from sunscorch. White washing of the plant stem using lime should be adopted till the canopy fully covers the area.

Only the brown stem portion should be whitewashed. Copper sulphate need not be applied in lime wash.  

Precautions have to be taken, as the chance of fire is very high in rubber plantations during summer and therefore, fire belts have to be made around the plantation.

Growers are advised to contact the Board Call Centre for more details in this regard.  Call Centre number is 0481 – 2576622.
