"Until now the price of rubber is still far below the standard, even many rubber farmers who cut their rubber have switched planted it into other commodity crops, "said Anto a rubber farmer in Kapau Alam Pauh Duo, Solsel on the bow on Wednesday (4/9).
According to him, if there are other jobs besides farming rubber, it is better to work other than to scare rubber. "It is not comparable to selling prices with businesses, many residents who leave their rubber plantations switch to other businesses," he said.
Meanwhile, a rubber or toke supplier in Solsel, Basri said the price of rubber could be bought at a price of Rp. 7,000 / kg. "In Muaralabuh, I have survived to buy rubber. Since 2010, the price of rubber is very uncertain even far below the normal price so that many farmers are lazy to cultivate their rubber gardens," he said.
He said, for the Kapau Alam Pauh Duo area, the majority of residents worked as rubber farmers. "The economy of the people here is declining, due to the price of rubber is much cheaper. Just imagine for people who want to find life," he said.
