A NEW PRODUCTIVE BLEND
Last year I wrote about the decline of tea exports in Bangladesh. This has happened due to the fact that the internal consumption is going up 3.5 percent every year against 1 percent production growth. The country now produces nearly 60 million kilograms a year, but after domestic demand has been satisfied just 12 million is left over for export. There is a great demand for Bangladesh Tea in foreign countries. So the imperative was to increase the productivity.
According to this report, Botanists at the Bangladesh Tea Research Institute have developed a new variety of tea, called BT16. The new variety has a better taste, as well as almost double production yield.
However it will take some years to get the commercial benefits of plantation of this new clone. I hope it will bring good luck for Bangladesh.
