17 Dec 2008

The International Society of Tea Science helped organize a National Seminar by the Uttaranchal Tea Development Board at Almora on May 29-30 after a field visit to the site of new tea plantations at Kausani, Uttaranchal, India. The meeting discussed the feasibility of introducing Clonal tea on the land that once supported a flourishing tea industry and then abandoned tea plantations for some reason which is still not clearly understood.
