Establishment and Management of Tea Gardens

Tea Production

Establishment and Management of Tea Gardens

  • Tea seedling planting, gap filling and subsequent agronomic practices are guided by DLGS, Sub County extension staff and existing factories extension staff with technical backstopping and guidance of MAAIF.
  • The beneficiary farmers shall take full responsibility of proper management of gardens with supervision of DLGs, OWC, Farmer Leaders, farmer management communities, factories extension staff and sub county extension workers.
  • The DLGs shall provide a status report of tea seedlings used in gap filling and expansion.

Implementation of the Guidelines

  • MAAIF coordinates implementation of these guidelines in collaboration with NAADS Secretariat and the participating DLGs.
  • To operationalize these guidelines, a special committee with representation from MAAIF (Directorates of Crop Resources and Agricultural Extension Services), NAADS Secretariat/OWC, DLGs, Nursery Operators and farmers is constituted.
  • Monitoring and evaluation of the guidelines is participatory.
  • The national monitoring team will be required to periodically (after every six months) travel to selected Tea growing Districts to assess the implementation of the guidelines.
