  rubber production

 

Thailand

Crude rubber is collected from trees in small cups (fig.), a process known as rubber tapping. After this, the small cups need to be processed hastily, before it coagulates.

 

When too late and the rubber has coagulated or hardened, it has become spoiled and useless, as is seen in these pictures.
