* Annual data for 2011 is anticipated figures reported by Government of Malaysia on 19th February, 2012.
1 In Malaysia, a section of smallholders stay away from tapping unless rubber price is not attractive. The reported "Area under tapping" need not match with the acreage planted.
2 Malaysia's data do not account rubber forests in Sabah and Sarawak States. A large extent of untapped mature area in the country is not accounted in the estimation of average yield.
