Rubber cultivation in thesearea must be followed by input of technology. In this paper we summarize the results of research and survey fromIndonesian Rubber Research Institute in order to support the utilization of sub-optimal area for rubber cultivation. Water management, modification of planting material and modification in planting manner are needed for rubber cultivation in tidal area while rubber development in area with high elevation; the selection of appropriate rubber clones and soil conservation techniquesare required.
