Mangalam Tea Estate has the distinction of being the only tea garden of its kind due its unique bush plantation. Encouraged by the outstanding results achieved from its experiments, the Jayshree Tea and Industries decided to create a new ideal plantation with the concept of close planting by uprooting some of the old tea sections of Towkok Tea Estate with new concept of close spacing of 21/2 x 11/2 x 11/2 x 11/2 x 11/2 with 100% clonal material of high quality potential. The entire garden of 117.99 hectare has been planted with a spacing of 18” x 18” x 18” x 18” with a plucking patch of 2’6” having a population of 42480 plants per hectare.
The entire garden is very well planned from the working convenience of point of view. The plantation has been divided in 1 (one) acre plot having 8’ wide footpath on 3 sides and 20’ wide road along the plantation after every five such one acre plot, thus providing motorable road encircling each plot of 10 acres and making it convenient to supervise every acre plantation while moving in a vehicle.
