The technological properties of the latex and natural rubber of H. brasiliensis clones GT 1, PB 235, IAN 873 and RRIM 600 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, were evaluated during 2000 and 2001 based on dry rubber content (DRC%), percentage of nitrogen (N%), and percentage of ashes (ASH%). Data were correlated with temperature and precipitation. The properties of latex and natural rubber varied (P<0.01) as a function of clone type and among tappings.
