මෙරට තේ සදහා රුසියාව විසින් පනවන ලද තහනම අද දිනයේ සිට ක‍්‍රියාත්මක වෙයි.
මේ නිසා මෙරට තේ දළු කිලෝවක් රුපියල් 30-40 තරම් පහල මිලකට ඇද වැටෙනු ඇති බව කුඩා තේ වතු හිමියන්ගේ ජාතික සම්මේලනය සදහන් කරයි.
දැනට මෙරට තේ දලු කිලෝවක් රුපියල් 100ක පමණ මිලට ගන්නා බව එහි ජාතික සංවිධායක ලාල් පේ‍්‍රමනාත් මහතා සදහන් කරයි.
මේ අතර රුසියාව විසින් පනවන ලද තහනම ඉවත් කිරීම සදහා සාකච්චා කිරීමට ශ‍්‍රි ලංකා ඇමති පිරිසක් රුසියාව බලා පිටත්ව යාමට නියමිතය.
ශ‍්‍රී ලංකාවේ ප‍්‍රධානතම තේ ගැනුම්කරුවන් වන රුසියාව එරට තේ උවමනාවෙන් 23%ක් සම්පූර්න කර ගන්නේ ශ‍්‍රි ලංකා තේවලිනි.
රුසියාවට තේ අපනයනයෙන් පමණක් වසරකට ඩොලර් බිලියන බාගයක පමණ මුදලක් මෙරට හිමිවෙයි

If this material is known to be causing cancer, how could it be beneficial to us seeing in the bigger picture.
Hell with the Russian market and find another market with better value add ons.

I am sure, if they are willing to trim down some of the perks given to a few with barely GCE O/L eduction and look at the issue in a human side, this can be sorted out well. Shocked

The Iran is forced to stop buying tea from us due to economic restrictions imposed by America on Iran. Iran accounted for about 20% of our tea exports. What will happen to the prices with this restriction. Have our officials any solutions for this?

Also one plus factors is the Rupee has depreciated by about 12 rupees a Dollar during the last 2 months. This can cushion the impact of lost sales from Iran issue.

Brave heart, pls concise your 3 posts to 1.. You can edit and merge Smile

When Iran is out of the picture I heard Libya & Syria has come to aid and topping the buying. In 2017 mostly it was Iraq, Turkey, Russia and Iran who bought tea from us.

The protest by plantation workers are still on until the time of writing this. They demand their daily wage to increase up to 1000/-. Of that happenes then that will increase the daily labor charge by approximately 50% which will be a huge blow.
I think it's the right time for all plantation companies to introduce technology for plucking. They need to spend on that capex if they are to make continues profits.

Performance related pay is the only solution.
The issue then is Workers will try to Pluck maximum amount of Tea Leaves without Pay attention to the standard method of Tea plucking that of Tea Bud with One leave.
But when you weigh the pros and cons Performance related pay is still the better i guess.

I am of the same view as of BH. Its the high time for plantation companies to introduce technology & reduce labor systematically.

Looks like nobody is willing to look at the perks enjoyed by a few with barely GCE OL qualification and what have they done all these years without looking at any technological advancement in plucking to increase the harvests.
The plantation is another sector where they want YES men than Thinkers.
That is why we are like this today.

Bit old article but contains good techniques that our plantations can adapt.

Machines are the future on tea plantations


Technological evolution usually has an impact, both positive and negative. This is no different for the Kenyan tea sector.


It is true that tea harvesting machines are taking over jobs and exposing thousands of workers to the pangs of the twin scourges of unemployment and poverty.


On the other hand, mechanisation is, in the real sense, an evolution of cost-effective tea harvesting. However, the pros and cons of this technological advancement seem to have been blown out of proportion, resulting in a tug of war between the concerned parties.


Since mechanical harvesting of tea is still in its infancy in Kenya, most plantations adopting the technology are using simple hand-held harvesters. It is a difficult start and is expected to affect the quality of tea.


Leaf quality generally improves with better machines and proper adaptation. Provided quality is assured, machine picked leaves are just as acceptable as those that are manually harvested.


Specialised tea harvesters are receiving attention in the industry globally. Unlike what is available in our tea zones, there are better machines that place tea harvesting on another level altogether


One such machine is the T1000 Magic Carpet tea harvester, designed to cover as much as one hectare per hour while floating over the tea bushes with precision and producing a better quality harvest.


This type of harvester is cost-effective and more accurate than the fleets of hand-held shearing machines currently in use in Kenya. Tea picking is all about quality, therefore technology needs to be revamped to meet the desired tastes.


Harvesting using hand-held machines has limitations. The selectivity of the tender shoots is lost, resulting in coarser and mechanically injured leaves, which affects the biochemical aspects of the tea, hence affecting the eventual quality.


Poor technology is a deterrent to quality. Some hand-held shears do actually spoil the broth. Tea harvesting is not like cutting grass. The tender shoots comprising of two leaves and a bud are of the best quality. But the innovations in the mechanisation of tea plucking have surprises for many since there are machines that perfect the art.


The mechanical harvesting of tea is slowly but surely being adopted around the world. In Africa, some countries like South Africa and Zimbabwe are using the technology on some tea estates. Parts of India, Sri Lanka, and Japan have tea farms that rely on mechanical tea harvesters.


Technology in essence plays an important role in our lives. There is no way we can run away from it. That is the message our brothers in the tea sector need to digest. The mechanisation of tea harvesting is an inevitable transition.


But the harsh reality is that any milestone in technology has a price. When computers first came, many workers in industries were scared of losing their jobs. But computerisation has paved the way to increased production and profits.


The other side of the coin was the massive lay-offs of workers in production lines that are now served by computers. Development has gone a step further, with new technologies achieving unrivalled industrial activity with little human intervention.


And the results are the products we see in the markets and the ease of living in the modern world.
