Effects of different methods of uprooting old tea and soil rehabilitation on some soil physical properties

Effects of different methods of uprooting old tea and soil rehabilitation on some soil physical properties

Tea 7(2): 58-65

The effects of using bulldozer, winch, hand labour or collar pruning to uproot old moribund tea, and the presence of the cover crops Guatemala grass (Tripsacum laxum) or Desmodium uncinatum for two years, were compared at Kericho, Kenya. Soil bulk density, mechanical impedance to penetration and infiltration rate were determined. Bulldozing caused the greatest soil compaction, giving high impedance and low infiltration.
