About this item
Botanists and crop scientists identify challenges to tea cultivation and approaches to making it more adaptable to climate change, more efficient in its use of resources, more resilient to pest and disease, and less harmful to the environment. They cover tea breeding and germplasm, cultivation and agronomy, plant protection, tea chemistry and phytochemicals, and sustainability. Their topics include mapping and exploiting the tea genome, the role of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in tea cultivation, pesticide residues in tea: challenges in detection and control, the potential role for tea in combating chronic disease, and supporting smallholders in tea cultivation.
