This dataset represents the production of 1 kg of tea. The average yield from 2009 - 2012 is 2.1 t/ha. The data are representative for tea production in Kenya used for the export market. Mineral NPK fertiliser input is 82-0-0 kg/ha. Organic fertilisers applied amount to 5.26 m3/ha of liquid manure and 4.67 t/ha of solid manure. Total active ingredients (a.i.) applied as pesticides amount to 5.49 kg a.i./ha.
The dataset was modelled within the project 'World Food LCA database (WFLDB)'. The aim of this project was to provide inventories of a broad variety of agricultural products and processes and to cover for each product at least 50% of the global export market. The export share of tea produced in Kenia amounts to 21% of the global export (tonnage exported in 2010). The production system regarded in this dataset aimed at representing tea produced in Kenia for the export market.
PEF-Quality: data quality rating (DQR) = 3.3 (i.e. fair quality). This dataset refers to an average situation; for specific situations exchanges might differ substantially due to site specific parameters
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.
