Abstract: Kerala is the leading State in India for rubber plantations and grows to 92% of the Country’s total rubber production. Rubber is an important agricultural plantation, rapidly expanding in to both climatically optimal and suboptimal environmental conditions. Tapping of rubber trees is a skill oriented work and the labors availability in this field is a big problem faced today, which affected the natural rubber productivity in the plantations of Kerala. The unskilled labors cannot be used for traditional method of rubber tapping. This condition warrants the need of a semi-automatic or mechanised rubber tapping machine, which doesn’t need labor skill. The present study explains the Designs and other specifications of four Models of mechanised Rubber Tapping Devices
