open in viewer

In recent decades, Kangra Valley tea production has declined by 50% predominately among farms less than a hectare. Our goal was to investigate small-scale tea production and develop suggestions and innovations beneficial to small estates. Tea growers were interviewed and surveyed to identify the vulnerabilities in the region. We designed a mechanical harvester to improve efficiency and reduce the need for labor, and produced recommendations to revitalize the Kangra tea market and modify government policies.
