I hope this shot sheds some more light on the process I described yesterday :-) The empty coconut shells are a thing of the past - they are rarely used these days, but I asked my uncle to use one just to get the charm of how they did it in the good old days. Apart from giving valuable latex, the trees also provide shade from the scorching summer sun.
Latex farming is a tough job - it takes a lot of hard work on part of the farmer to get a good output. It takes some strategy to manage the land in such a way that new saplings are planted at the right time so that they are grown-up by the time the old ones have no more latex left.
