The budding of rubber. The present position

The budding of rubber. The present position

Trop Agriculturist [ceylon] 67(1): 3-6

Yields from budded trees in Malaya, Sumatra, and Java are given. The data from Malaya indicate that 80 budded trees per acre tapped 160 times a year would yield 561 pounds of rubber annually, while the same number of seedling trees would give only 163 pounds. The Sumatran data show that the same number of budded trees would average 407 pounds per acre annually, while seedling trees would yield 225 pounds. Some clones of budded trees in Java yielded less than seedling trees, but the bud shoots were 6 months younger than the seedlings. Calculated on the basis of yield per cm. of tapping cut, all clones of budded trees give an average yield somewhat higher than that of the seedlings. As the mother trees from which buds are taken are of paramount importance in influencing the yields of budded trees, buds should never be taken from untried trees. The influence of the stock upon growth and yield of budded trees is discussed.
