Long term effect on yields of pruning clonal tea (Camellia sinensis L.) at different heights at high altitude in Kenya



Long term effect on yields of pruning clonal tea (Camellia sinensis L.) at different heights at high altitude in Kenya



Tea 11(1): 13-17



Fifteen-year-old bushes of clone 6/8 were pruned in Feb. 1980 at 4 heights (60, 30 or 15 cm above ground level, and at ground level) and after recovery from pruning they were tipped-in to form plucking tables at 70, 40, 25 and 10 cm, respectively. The bushes were pruned again between 1985 and 1988, depending on the initial pruning heights, and all were pruned once more in 1989 to synchronize the timing.
