➢ The programme is a refresher course on rubber, commencing from nursery practices through the exploitation of the crop.
➢ Estate practices with regard to rubber have been long forgotten by most older planters and probably unheard of by young planters as large plantation groups have moved away from this crop, for Oil Palm (OP).
➢ Owing to over-dependency on a single crop, viz OP, some plantation companies have returned to rubber as a form of minor diversification, especially when the environment is deemed less favorable to OP. The latter include steep terrain and prolonged climatic dry spells.
➢ The topics covered would provide participants with much information on the choice of clones with regard to climatic conditions, practical issues related to the preparation of nursery materials, good field planting practices, disease control, nutrition, and suitable exploitation systems for clones.
