Tea garden activities resume in Tripura

Durgabari (Tripura), June 11 (ANI): After a pause in work due to the coronavirus-imposed curfew all activities in the tea gardens in Tripura are gradually resuming but with half the workers engaged both in plucking and factories. This has given some respite to tea estates which are predicting a huge loss. However, due to the curfew, the gardens missed the first plucking of the season and the leaves got wasted, as due to the shortage of labour, no irrigation could be arranged for watering the tea bushes for which artificial or rainwater is very important for budding. Tripura has more than 50 tea gardens beside hundreds of small growers and is one of the tea-growing states of India.
