Tea Leaves Harvesting

Hallo Farmnest,
For one of my Thesis literature I am in need of soe details regarding tea leaves harvesting.

Can someone say me the approx. volume and/or mass of tea leaves harvested by an employee per min or per hour?
In India, are people still using their hands to harvest the leaves or use of leaf harvesting machines are introduced?
Also what is the approx. weight of the leaves collecting bag and what is the maximum volume of leaves the bag can contain?

Regards

it depends upon many factors.
do you know the tea industry practicals?
