Abstract

Rubber industry is one of the main contributors to Malaysia's economic growth. Rubber estates and smallholdings are major sources of rubber production in Malaysia. Rubber estates are the focus of this study as private contributors involved in the development of the rubber. A study was conducted to maximize rubber production and planted areas of rubber by using the goal programming approach. This approach has been taken to find the optimal solution to the problem.
