In 2017, while the output of tea in our country will increase, the quality and efficiency will be further enhanced. The Ministry of Agriculture's dispatching analysis on the situation of tea production in 2017 shows that the output of dry-woolly tea in China will reach 2.58 million tons, an increase of 170,000 tons over the previous year, and the proportion of intensive processed products will increase.
According to the data provided by the Ministry of Agriculture, the area of tea plantations nationwide will exceed 44 million mu in 2017, an increase of 1.3 million mu over the previous year. From the species point of view, the proportion of green tea and oolong tea production will continue to decline, black tea, black tea, white tea and other tea production accounted for 26% over the previous year increased by 1.2 percentage points. At the same time, refined products such as citrus tea, citrus black tea, herbal tea and other refined products, as well as ultra-fine tea powder, green tea, tea drinks and tea health products have further increased and the product structure has been optimized.
Benefiting from the vigorous promotion of standardization production throughout the country, a number of green quality product bases have been set up to create a number of influential public and well-known brands, and the industrial quality and benefits have been significantly improved. The price of spring tea in 2017 will increase by about 20% over the same period of last year. The gross output value of dry-haired tea is estimated at more than 1920 billion, an increase of 14.3%.
In the meantime, in combination with alternative organic fertilizer activities, the industry accelerated the promotion of organic fertilizers and promoted green prevention and control technologies such as physical control and biological control, reducing the amount of chemical fertilizers and promoting green development. Accelerated cloning of elite species, an area of 2800 acres, an increase of more than 100 acres.
Experts said that vigorously promote the development of green tea and standardization of production, improve the quality and efficiency of the tea industry and market competitiveness. Stabilize the area of tea, optimize the layout of the tea production area, promote the suitable area for suitable area, adapt the suitable area, consolidate and enhance the advantageous area, develop the premium area, and guide the non-dominant area to gradually withdraw from the tea plantation. We will speed up the selection of new varieties of high quality, high yield and multi-resistance, strengthen the registration and protection of new varieties, build a clonal breeding base and promote the upgrading of varieties. Integrate high-efficient, resource-saving and eco-friendly green production technology, promote the application of organic fertilizers instead of fertilizers and pest and disease control green technologies, and tackle bottlenecks of famous tea machines and enhance the mechanization of tea production. Promote brand creation, create a distinctive regional characteristics, distinctive regional public brand. Promote business innovation technology, improve production technology, optimize packaging design, enhance product quality, shape the core values of the brand.
