Tea (Camellia sinensis (L) O. Kuntze) belongs to the family Theaceae. It is a dicotyledonous perennial crop. Tea is the second largest consumed beverage in the world, after water. Total tea production of the world during 2007 was 3.527 million tones, and the total area under cultivation is around 5 million hectares. Tea cultivation was initiated in India, around 1886, with the opening of few gardens under two tea companies of Assam. Barak Valley region of Assam have 35,000 hectares (approx.) area under tea cultivation, which annually produces 46,000 thousands Kg of tea (approx.). As it is a long duration plantation crop, it has become largely prone to be attacked by several pathogens. Disease problems are found to be an integral part of the tea plant, which is under monoculture for over 150 years in North Eastern (N.E) region of India, including Barak Valley of Assam.
