AbstractMekar Tani group based in Sari Laba Jahe Village predominantly manages its rubber plantations multiple cropping. PKM activities carried out in the farmer group in 2019 by introducing wiretapping technology succeeded in increasing the production of the farmer group from an average of 0.18 kg / plant / tappap to 0.28 kg / plant / tappap. Another aspect that is a priority is the demands of improving the quality of people's rubber. Based on discussions with members of the farmer group, as well as detailed observations of the handling of bokar in the farmer group, it was formulated the introduction of bokar handling activities described into several parts, namely: clean sap comfort in the container, garden-scale bokar handling technology, and negotiations with the manufacturer, which were carried out by discussion and training methods. The purpose of this activity is to train members of the farmer group in handling clean sap in container containers, garden-scale bokar handling technology, and negotiations with the manufacturer. The result of this activity is the acquisition of increased bokar production and improvement of bokar quality using natural clumping glugur acid extract and nenas fruit extract. In the end, an increase in group income of Rp.300 - Rp.500 / kg of rubber produced.
