This study from Vietnam shows that a switch from conventional to organic tea productions would bring real environmental, health and economic benefits for the country’s farmers and its society as a whole. In particular the amount of agrochemical residue and waste produced by tea production would be reduced. Farmers would also be able to enjoy a better livelihood as they could command a premium price for their organic tea products. The study therefore recommends that organic tea production is the best method for farmers to adopt.
