To mitigate the distress situation getting confronted by small growers, the Rubber Board has made a decision to enter the marketplace for procurement.

It has formulated an motion system to procure the commodity by way of Rubber Board-promoted companies. The procurement will commence from Saturday (April twenty five). The system envisages advancing a precise volume to growers centered on the grade and the balance would be paid out once the marketplace stabilises. The Board will procure up to a hundred kg from a small grower, reported a press launch.

Dismissing rumours in the social media on the possibility of a price drop, the Board reported that the rubber marketplace will be energetic once the curbs introduced as element of the lockdown simplicity. The details of the plan can be attained from the Rubber Board call centre no 04812576622.
