Economic analysis of different methods of tea uprooting, soil rehabilitation and clonal replanting on moribund tea fields in Kenya

Economic analysis of different methods of tea uprooting, soil rehabilitation and clonal replanting on moribund tea fields in Kenya

Tea 14(2): 107-122

Economic analysis of 4 methods of uprooting tea plants (by collar pruning, hand, bulldozer or winch), followed or not by rehabilitation for 2 years with a Guatemala grass or Desmodium uncinatum cover crop, revealed that at a 20% level of discounting, only hand uprooting followed by rehabilitation with Guatemala grass had a positive net present worth at the end of the 10-year study period. This method also resulted in a higher rate of return than other methods (20-30 vs. 10-20%, respectively).
