  • Product Description
 

Tea is an important crop in Kenya''s economy because it is one of the leading commodity in foreign exchange earnings. The author of this book argues that mite attack damages the tea crop resulting into yield losses and hence the need for mitigation measures. He points out that apart from minimizing mite attack by use of resistant tea varieties, tea plant nutrition enhances tolerance to mite attack. On the basis of field trials and laboratory tests, fertilizer application was done and mite attack incidences were monitored. The data obtained was quantitatively and qualitatively analyzed. Findings indicated that mite numbers were consistently low in resistant tea varieties. Consequently, the use of resistant varieties such as clone 6/8 and clone SFS 150 in mite prone areas along with adequate application of relevant fertilizers is recommended. This book is highly recommended for tea researchers, tea estate managers, and scholars in tertiary institutions and universities where integrated pest management practices are studied.
