Increase in rubber prices brings cheer to plantation farmers

People in the business of rubber plantation are heaving a sigh of relief after rubber prices saw increase in prices after a long gap of a year. Rubber is presently being sold at increased price of around Rs 160 per kg. "The present increase in rubber price to Rs 160 a kilogram is very helpful for farmers as heavy rain in the last 4 months has caused losses already," said one plantation farmer.
