pest infestation in tea
Tea mosquito bug (TBG) is causing a lot of damage to the crop. It is putting poison in the leaves. If the leaves are not plucked, it destroys the whole plant. Similarly, red spider insect and looper cater pillar are also causing a lot of damage to the crop.
is the second largest country in tea production
Let us tell you that after China, is called the second largest tea producing country. But the production of tea is decreasing due to the changing weather. Experts believe that 30 years ago there were no pests in the crop, but nowadays the spray of chemicals has increased so much that the crop is continuously coming under the grip of pests and diseases. Apart from this, due to the arrival of monsoon, water has started flowing from above in the tea gardens, due to which the gardens are ruined.
temperature for tea
18 to 30 degree Celsius temperature is considered good for tea production. If the temperature is above 32 degree or goes below 13 degree, then it affects the growth of the plant. Apart from this, strong winds, freezing cold and heavy rains also have a bad effect on production. If we talk about Darjeeling tea, earlier it used to be more cold, but now it is not so. The reason for this is climate change.
