Rain Guards are harmful to rubber trees

Dear farmers,

In India 85% of small rubber cultivators are avilable and many of the farmers are holding below one Acre of land. First of all farmers have to know what action will continue within the trees in winter? One thing we can asure that the phloem is active with the availability of carbohydrates due to the availability of water through the roots. The percentage of photosynthesis will reduce at rainy season. The latex preperation will be low and tapping with the help of rain guards allows late dripping with low drc containing minimum coagulating agents and magnesium. Magnesium have to reach the leaves at the lower branches of the trees. At this stage  and the bark of upper part of the stem will use magnesium from phloem and defficiency of the flow of magnesium to the roots will create Brown bast in future.

Rubber trees are for a long period which can build new bark more than 12 times means taping can be done from A to Z panels by maintaining the phloem liquid through in puts. The photosynthesis on new bark helps to prepare new milk/latex vessels and bark. I would like to say the farmers that don’t spoil your trees by increasing tapping days in winter. Minimum tapping days in winter can save your trees healthy. Carbohydrates and latex are equivqlent to blood in the humanbody for Rubber trees.

By the application of 200 grams of magnesium sulphate can maintain the tree with active phloem and latex vessels and tapping can be done on clear days (not rainy days) up to a difference of 10 days or more. Total tappings days may be nearer to the rain guared trees for the whole year. Then the production cost can be reduced by avoiding rain guard, rubber coat, indophil M-45 etc. and labour for it. Expences for drying sheets also high in winter. Apply magnesium alone because it will react with NPK mixture in which ‘N’ is acidic. Magnesium works better with carbonate and sulphate.  If you want to apply NPK that can be applied on August. In this way your annual proffit can be increased. “Comments and suggestions” expected from experts, because I am an ordinary farmer.
