Risda chairman Datuk Mohd Salim Mohd Sharif was quoted as saying that the present floor price of scrap rubber, which was RM2.50 per kg, was far lower than oil palm that could fetch up to RM1,100 per tonne.In another development, Zuraida said the Rubber Industry Transformation Project (Target) - a development project for Crip Rubber Processing Centre clusters nationwide which will be introduced to the upstream rubber industry.
