Harvesting Policies For Tea in Malawi

  • R. W. Palmer-Jones (a1)

Summary

The information collected from an experiment on tea, in which two plucking intervals and three plucking standards were imposed, allowed analysis of the effects on the total value of output (Cloughley et al., 1983; Cloughley, 1983). The analysis can be extended and its practical relevance improved by incorporating harvesting and manufacturing costs. Using information collected in another experiment and readily available economic information the effects of incorporating these costs are presented. A method of simultaneously determining optimal plucking interval and standard is described.
