“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.
