Royal Commission on Labour in India: Report(1929)||
The plantations in Burma are mostly situated in the Tenasserim Division, which is the southernmost part of the province. Excluding cinchona, the only plantation crop in this province is rubber, of which the total-average is about 113, 000, but there is considerable scope for development. A feature of rubber cultivation is the small labour force employed as compared with tea or coffee. In 1929 the Burma plantations employed about 17, 000 persons, of whom less than 13, 000 were permanently settled on the plantations. .
