About the Plant:

  • This first of its kind plant has been developed exclusively for the northeast so that they can thrive in the climatic conditions of the region..
  • The need to develop the GM rubber plant was felt because Natural rubber is a native of warm humid Amazon forests and is not naturally suited for cold conditions in the northeast.
  • The crop is currently planted on an experimental basis and once the trials are over, the new crop will greatly benefit farmers as well as give a big boost to rubber production in the country.

  • Assam Governor: Jagdish Mukhi;
