Conserve water and increase tea yield with precision irrigation

India is one of the leading producers of tea across the globe. Nevertheless, tea crop growth is often found to be restricted by an inadequate or ineffective supply of water and nutrients, which are otherwise extremely vital for crop growth. Precision irrigation works as a solution to increase the crop yield and its quality, regardless of the weather conditions.

Why precision irrigation for tea?

  • Overcome environmental challenges and reduce risk 
    Unfavorable weather conditions have resulted in a decrease in tea production. With precision irrigation, climate-related risks are eliminated as the tea plant receives the correct amount of water and nutrients.
  • Optimal nutrition - even in the wet season 
    During the rainy season, nutrient leaching can be a real problem for tea crops. Most of it can be avoided by applying fertilizers through the drip irrigation system directly to the root zone.
  • Drip irrigation – everyone’s cup of tea 
    Whether you grow on a single hectare or thousands of hectares, on a slope or on a flat plot, Precision irrigation is the solution that can meet your special needs.
  • Get more from every hectare 
    With precision irrigation and modern agricultural practices such as fertigation, mechanical harvesting and Intensive pruning, you can increase productivity per hectare and deliver a high-quality product.
  • Faster plant-to-commercial production 
    By keeping tea plants healthy with precision nutrition and no water stress, the time of plant-to-commercial production is reduced, leading to a faster profit. 

Things we often get asked:

  • Can my tea plantation be irrigated remotely?

    Yes. Advanced digital tools allow you to activate and manage your irrigation and tea nutrition from the palm of your hand, giving you remote access by mobile, tablet or computer - wherever you are.

  • Why should I choose drip irrigation rather than methods that seem less expensive?

    Cost is important, but a faster return of investment is crucial for your business. Drip irrigation technology leads to significant savings in water, fertilizer and labor, so not only does the yield increase, but also the crop quality. Economic calculations show precision irrigation is the most sustainable system for tea plantation long-term, delivering higher economic returns than other methods.

  • Which factors will help me increase my tea plant productivity?

    Precision irrigation, fertigation via the drip system, and implementation of comprehensive agronomical practices - such as correct pruning - are key factors for greater productivity
