At Alpine Tea Co. we tailor our fertilisation program to ensure that our teas receives the right nutrient/s at the right time in the growth cycle to achieve optimum plant health and tea quality.
Plant health is monitored through regular analysis of plant tissue and the fertiliser program is changed to reflect the results.
As well as tending the nutritional requirements of the plant we also pay special attention to soil health.
The use of soil “Activators” encourage increased activity of beneficial microbes and fungi. These microbes and fungi work together with the tea’s root system to increase the availability and take-up of the nutrients that the tea requires.
