Yes it can be mortgaged as rubber plant yields money and every plant has price as per the government rate list.

But it all depends upon the bank which will mortgage you. So you should visit and have a good conversation with it.

NO property under lease may be mortgaged. Only the property owner may do that and only in certain loans where agricultural properties will be mortgaged.

Dear Client,

Rubber is a prominent plantation crop of considerable significance to the Indian economy and India is the fourth largest producer of natural rubber. To assist the rubber growing farmers, Federal Bank provides loan facilities under Plantation Development Scheme. Available maximum amount up to 85 % of the actual cost of cultivation.

I think land is not a source/guarantee for loan but yield, so possible.
