Removal of shoot tips is a very useful technique to boost the production of tea leaves. This is because:

1. Gibberellins prevent bolting and are inactivated.
2.  Auxins prevent leaf drop at early stages.
3. Effect of auxins is removed and the growth of lateral buds is enhanced.
4.  Gibberellins delay the senescence of leaves.
