Supporting smallholders in tea cultivation

Code: 9781838796211
Atik Dharmadi, Research Institute for Tea and Cinchona, Indonesia

Chapter synopsis: This chapter describes how smallholder organization can be strengthened to support tea cultivation. Smallholders are weak in terms of productivity owing to low yields and lack of working capital in comparison with large state-owned and private plantations. The chapter describes how the transition from a smallholders’ group to a smallholder-owned company can be managed, and reviews existing literature on smallholder development and lessons that can be learned in this area. It examines the ways in which smallholder-owned companies compete and form partnerships, and looks ahead to future trends in this area.
