5 REASONS TO MECHANISE YOUR TEA HARVESTING
1. KTDA HAS APPROVED THE USE OF TEA PLUCKING MACHINES COUNTRYWIDE
Kenya Tea Development Agency (KTDA), responsible for over 60% of tea produced in Kenya through some 600,000 smallholder tea farmers, carried out extensive tests during the years 2019 / 2020 that proved machine plucked tea is of as high quality as tea plucked by hand.
KTDA therefore approved the use of machines by tea farmers across the 16 tea growing counties in Kenya.
Upon acquisition of the M-Chai machine, we will provide you with a form to fill and submit to your local factory so that they know you have adopted machine plucking.
- MACHINE PLUCKING IS FASTER THAN HAND PLUCKING
Once you master the art of machine picking, you will discover that picking by machine cannot be equated to hand plucking. You will cover greater surfaces sooner with mechanization.
- AN ATTRACTIVE FARM
Machine plucking maintains the height of your tea to a favourable plucking table, facilitating faster turnaround in plucking time. We all know that some labourers avoid certain tea farms due to poorly kept tea. Once you adopt machine use, such actions will be a thing of the past.
- LESS PLUCKING TIME MEANS MORE TIME FOR STRATEGY
Adoption of machine plucking will mean that you do not require labourers in your farm every day. You can plan your tea plucking into manageable schedules. This translates to less time managing people and more time thinking like a business man / woman.
- REDUCED COST OF PRODUCTION AT FARM LEVEL
The biggest win is that you, the tea farmer will reap greater returns from your farm for far less cost. Which business person would not want that?
