The very early maturing cycle of Tea (< 8-10 days
less than Loto) allows maximum late sowing which
is the best way to reduce red rice contamination,
resulting in greater freedom of action and better
Tea is suitable for difficult growing conditions such as re-sowing in periods when it would be risky for other varieties, and organic farming with stale seedbeds.
In the event of very late sowing, it is recommended to adjust the amount of seeds to make up for normal tillering deficiencies.Treat the crop with a fungicide in case of very late sowing.
