B50. Organic Stimulant to Increase Jelutong Resin

Innovation on the use of organic stimulant was created to improve resin productivity of jelutong (Dyera costulata (Miq). Hook). The stimulant is an organic material i.e. galangal, lemon and wood vinegar. Galangal contains flavonoids and anti-fungal; lemon and wood vinegar contain citric and acetic acids respectively. Those substances are known to be able to facilitate the flow of resin excretion during the tapping process. The use of stimulant as much as ± 1 cc on the tapping incision was proven to increase jelutong resin production.

Perspective

Currently, jelutong resin is tapped conventionally without stimulant. Organic stimulant was proposed to improve jelutong resin production safely and environmentally friendly.

Innovation Exellence

  • Meaningkatkan produksi getah jelutung selama penyadapan.
  • Murah, dapat dilakukan oleh masyarakat lokal.
  • Aman dan tidak mencemari lingkungan.

Potential Application

The use of organic stimulants could be applied in jelutong forest. The stimulants could also be applied in the tapping process of any resinous trees.
