Rainfall upsets tapping and productions considerably. Rainwater that flows down the trunk from the crown causes the panel to be wet and upsets the flow of latex along the tapping cut when tapping is carried out. Fixing a rain guard over the panel overcomes such problem. This tool was introduced in 2011 to our estate in Padang Terap and it was given the trade name of ’Tapping Panel Shade’.
The tool is installed above the tapping panel to avoid the tapping panel from getting wet and keep tapping results during rain. The main problem faced by estate owner or rubber smallholders during the rainy season is the tapping panel’s wet condition and result nicks damaged by rain. Rubber trees can only be tapped when the tapping panel is dry. The tapping shade is protective and effective especially in the rainy season.
In summary, we are committed to efficiently supply our agricultural and agro-based products to the market such as Bio-Organic Fertilizer and Tapping Panel Shade. We are continuously enhancing and improving our products and services to the customers. We do cherish our valuable customers.
We believe and highly confident that with the strong foundation built by KLPK and KNSB, we can achieve the group’s mission and vision. Further, the group aims to be the forefront leader in the field of agriculture and agro-based industry in Malaysia within five years beginning 2010.
