Final chapter of replanting plan

Replanting over 5 years
Today’s new planting is the final chapter.
In the future, it is necessary to aim to create a mature arboretum that can maintain high quality and high yield production for a long period of time.
For that purpose, it is necessary to work on the basic management of the young tree garden, which has technical ability, observation ability, execution ability such as concentration of trunks and branches that are the skeleton of tea plants, and increase

It’s a little early

Since it will be warm rain from tomorrow evening, we applied “sprouting fertilizer”.

It is said that the theory is to use chemical fertilizer for “sprouting fertilizer” and to perform it during the sprouting period.
Before it rains again …
Therefore, I did fertilization work a little earlier.

It is said that this fertilizer contributes most to the growth and umami of tea buds by applying it 20 days before picking the tea buds.

Just waiting for the tea seedlings to arrive …

We laid a vinyl mulch for new tea planting.

Black mulch and black-and-white mulch for tea plant stocks in the young tree stage have a high growth promoting effect and can be expected to grow early.
In the past, rice straw materials were used, but due to the shortage, they are switching to this cultivation method.

At my home, we use black mulch, which has a high growth-promoting effect until 4 years after planting.

To deepen the root system

Rice straw has been used for new tea planting to promote growth and reduce cold drought damage, but in recent years there has been a shortage of rice straw materials, and a coating material that has the same or better growth promotion effect as rice straw. As a result, the use of poly mulch materials is increasing.
It is said that mulching to the origin of tea plants in the young tree stage has a high growth promoting effect and can be expected to grow early.

However, if the poly mulch used with the expectation of growth promoting effect is left as it is, the root system tends to become shallow.
This is the second year since planting because it makes it more susceptible to drought damage in winter.

As it started to rain regularly, I removed the poly mulch.

In some fields

A covering material with a high heat-retaining effect is applied for the purpose of quick delivery.
This will accelerate the plucking period by 4-5 days.

 

This year, I set a “wireless temperature logger” on the tea stock surface.
This is a substitute that allows you to check the temperature from a remote location on your smartphone or tablet. You can record the measured values, check the data and graphs with the dedicated app, and send the data as a CSV file by email.

Until now, the temperature was controlled only by the outside temperature, but this year it will be possible to know the temperature on the tea plant under the coating.

Pruning work has begun in earnest.

 

“Pruning” is a management required, especially in mechanical pruning tea gardens, to even out the pruned surface after pruning and to prevent new leaves from being mixed with old leaves and tree trunks.
Sayama, who calls it “spring pruning,” begins to make a weekly outlook for the spring equator.
By adopting “spring pruning”, the number of leaves planted in winter is large, it is not easily affected by cold weather, and the pruning time of buds is delayed by several days, so it is less susceptible to freezing and frost damage.

In a recent study, the total nitrogen content of old leaves remaining in the fall showed a high value of 4% in November, then gradually decreased, increased again in March, and the most tea buds grew. .. It is known to decrease significantly during the period.
This is because the tea plant gradually transfers the nutrients stored in the old leaves by photosynthesis and moves the roots in preparation for the germination of new shoots in the year following winter when the activity ends and the dormancy begins. in spring. It is said that by sending sprouts to sprouts at once and growing sprouts, it shows the results of activities to survive as a plant. In other words, it is said that “spring pruning” is ideal, in which old leaves are pruned when nutrients are transferred to the roots and become shells in spring.

Because it’s getting warmer

The covering material of the tea plantation was peeled off with the aim of suppressing excessive light in the low temperature of winter and keeping the photosynthetic ability of mature leaves high.

As a result, the free amino acid content of the sprout increases and the yield of the first tea increases.

We pruned a tea plantation grown in a greenhouse.

“Pruning” is a management that is especially necessary for mechanical pruning tea gardens, and is performed to make the pruned surface uniform after pruning and to prevent old leaves and tree stems from being mixed in the fresh leaves.

In the Sayama saying “HaruSeishi”, will start to prospect the per equinoctial week of spring.
By using “spring pruning”, the number of leaves set in winter is large, so it is less susceptible to cold damage, and the time of sprout pruning is delayed by several days, so it is less susceptible to frost damage.
Also, since the number of buds is small, the weight of the buds is heavy.
This leads to the characteristics of Sayama tea.

I have made a “business notification”.

The “Food Sanitation Law” has been amended, and even my family, who runs the tea industry, is now subject to the “Business Notification System”.

The content of the notification will be the name of the person making the notification, the location of the facility, the form of business, information on the foods that are mainly handled, and the name of the person in charge of food hygiene.
In addition, the food business operator of the notification facility is obliged to manage hygiene in accordance with HACCP.

Approximately 15 years have passed since the last revision of the Food Sanitation Law, etc., and due to changes in the household structure, changes in food needs such as increased demand for cooked foods, eating out and ready-to-eat meals, and imported foods. The environment surrounding food and food has changed, such as the progress of globalization of food such as the increase in food. And it is an urgent issue to deal with health hazards caused by food, such as the outbreak of food poisoning over a wide area beyond prefectures and the end of the decrease in the number of food poisoning outbreaks. In addition, in anticipation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics and the promotion of food exports, food hygiene management that is consistent with international standards will be required.

To secure a healthy root with high absorbency

In order to increase the absorption and utilization rate of fertilizer in the tea plantation, it is necessary to secure a sufficient amount of healthy roots (fine roots) with high absorption capacity at the fertilizer application site.

For this reason, it is important to thoroughly implement basic techniques such as wide fertilization, medium cultivation after fertilization, and soil pH adjustment.
This is a medium cultivation work after fertilization.
