Last date for submitting application for certification of planting materials is 28 February 2017
Kottayam, 28 December 2016
Rubber nursery owners can submit application for registration of rubber nurseries and certification of planting materials from the Rubber Board up to 28 February 2017. Applications are to be submitted at the regional offices of the Board. Application form and details can be had from the regional offices or Board’s website (www.rubberboard.org.in).
Registration of nurseries and certification of planting materials will be given for the rubber nurseries who voluntarily apply for it. The objective of the scheme is to ensure quality of planting materials supplied from private nurseries.
Rubber production is mainly dependent on the quality of planting materials used, and so the nurseries in the private sector should be competent to make good quality materials.
