Multi layer farming technology in rubber plantations

Major problems faced by the rubber farmers are mono-cropping and price fluctuations. CORE team developed a package for solving this issue by developing a package for multilayer farming using black pepper and cocoa. For the successful demonstration of the technology we have standardized the spacing in rubber plantations from 15*15 from 20*10 for getting better inter row spaces and we identified shade loving pepper varieties such as Narayakodi, Kumbukkal, Panniyoor -5 and Karimunda for getting better yield. By this model farmer is getting steady income from rubber plantations
