India's Tea Estates Will Soon Be Driven By Chinese Technology

India's Tea Estates Will Soon Be Driven By Chinese Technology

India and China have come to an agreement that both will be focusing on Indian tea exports to China. This decision was initiated by The Indian Tea Association (ITA) along with the China Tea Marketing Association (CTMA). About 15 million kg of tea exports will be sent to China next year (2019). Further, the cost-effective production techniques will also be learnt from its largest neighbour says The Indian Tea Association. Also, the joints promotions will give India a clear vision on how to mechanize gardens while maintaining quality. The European market is one of the keys to the promotion of tea. 

China is currently producing 2609 mkg of tea on an annual. This is across its 0.28 million hectares cultivable area which is considered to be really great because most of the gardens are highly mechanised. But in India, around 0.57 million hectares are under the tea cultivation process while the production stands are around 1300 mkg. That is half to what China is producing now. Experts feel with China’s advanced mechanism it is most likely to be in the favour of Indian tea estates. Another major factor that is causing a problem is the Owing frequent absenteeism in all the gardens along with the wage crisis that is making owners shift to ‘machine-driven’ methods than traditional hand plucking methods.
