Success Message of WTCE 2015
| Plantation crops are high value commercial crops with greater economic importance and play a vital role in Indian economy. Tea & coffee are the two major plantation crops amongst others, which include coconut, cashew nut, and rubber.
The Indian tea industry in India is about 172 years old. Tea is grown in the states like Assam, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Tripura, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. However, production in substantial quantities is limited to the first five states.
Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha along with North Eastern States are the main states for producing Coffee crops.
India demands for quality Tea and Coffee and ranks 2nd to be the largest producer of Tea and ranks 6th to be the largest producer of Coffee. Coffee and Tea are two important plantation crops with higher export earnings.
India produces both Arabica and Robusta types of coffee. However, coffee production is skewed towards Robusta in the ratio of 32:68. On an average, approximately 80% of the coffee produced in India is exported.
Inspite of several challenges such as Climatic condition, government policies, poor management practice, old age of tea bushes and other infrastructural issues; production and exports of tea have seen growth in the last few years.
