In South India, the main problems occur because of a leaf fungus disease called Blister Blight in the wet weather, and varieties of leaf-damaging mites in the dry weather.
Whilst this took care of some of the nutrition requirements of the tea bush, shade regulation helped in minimizing Blister Blight, and an additional bonus was discovered when it was noticed that the Neem cake being applied to the soil was acting as a repellent to the mite.
While their use may be in the area of rhizosphere, their application for foliar diseases such as Blister blight, for which 35-37 sprays are in vogue in India, may be useful provided that we have the right type of organisms and also the formulation which will kill the spore before it enters, and therefore effectively reduce the sporulation.
