Since 2008/09 rubber crop gone to higher level
Many major countries having rubber stockpiles to match their record.
In the lowest level of the crop price many companies started to expansion of oil palm which recognised its potential as a complementary crop to rubber,But in the highest level of the price in 2011 planters are motivated back to Natural Rubber Industry and which crops are starting to harvest now through out Thailand,Malaysia,Indonesia etc. While we are having over production this new suppliers will find the bottom of the natural rubber price.
I personally do not believe better future for rubber companies because on one side we do not have better plan to keep the labours in the industry.
But if I really want to stay with rubber companies I would moving to Kotagala Plantation rather than staying with Sri Lankan plantation companies(If Cambodia project having green lit.)
Apology for my mistakes
