    Same here, but we are still selling [gate] when any of the plantations get 4 or more taps in, need the beer money.

    On a brighter note, seems there is will be a shortage of rubber this year.

    4 taps in? Reminds me of Monty Python's Yorkshire men sketch - "you were lucky........"
    Last month (4 weeks) we've had 4 taps...........

    So not making millions as predicted back in 2007
    How are you doing now apart from not owning the land?

    ie workers wages, fertiliser, water, machinery increases v profit.

    I think a lot got pressured by wifes and other goofballs into investing (keep the family busy out of rice season)
    Never mind they have the land and wood

    Sold cup at auction today, 22.80 baht per kg.
    Decent output due to a recent lull in the rain. In fact best production figures this season.

    Sold cup at auction yesterday, 22.70 baht per kilo.
    Was expecting higher.
    Oil is at it's highest price in 4 years ($ per barrel), and the GRM website said the TOCOM price was the highest in a month.

    Prolly due to only 5 bidders instead of the normal 10-12, due to the banks shut yesterday.
    Have gone to a temporary 55-45% split.

    Worst price received in 8 seasons of tapping.

    Makes one wonder, China bought 1/2 of Thai Hua rubber this week, how many of the other rubber houses does China own large share blocks off.

    Nothing illegal about owning shares, or controlling interests in export companies, but, if you are big enough, you control the market.

    Indian tire companies are crying poor as they can't source enough rubber locally and there are import restrictions plus a 25 % import tax.

    Thai Government is getting a bit worried about the prices and has passed a rubber subsidy of up to 16500 Baht for registered rubber plantations, payable in January, but few small farmers are registered.

    As said, I'm big enough to get by, but it will be one tight dormant season, the bank of agriculture has written to us about offering low interest loans, need loans to repay like a hole in the head.

    Will get through this down turn, just like the others, but getting sick of not being able to plan anything more than a month ahead.

    Wanted to plant coffee, need a loan, wanted to buy a house in Ubon, need a mortgage, just don't want to put the kids future in the hands of a bank, who will take those assets away if you can't pay.

    The bain of all farmers. Market fluctuations, unseasonal weather, and political nonsense make farming risky business.
