Wu Chengyuan (吴成远) – Assistant Tea EngineerAssistant Tea Engineer

In March 2009, Wu Chengyuan joined the company and began learning techniques in tea tree cultivation, tea planting, and comprehensive management. He has been responsible for logistics management, comprehensive management, and tea garden planting management at the Tea Science Institute.

In 2010, Wu participated in the successful exploration and practice of winter pruning or cutting back of tea gardens, nurturing tea trees in spring, and harvesting high-quality tea in summer and autumn to enhance the efficiency of tea gardens. In 2011, he proposed combining conventional pest control techniques with biological pest control measures, improving the tea garden growth environment. By 2013, he had established a high-quality, high-yield, and efficient production model for tea gardens, promoting a sustainable “tea for tea” production state, ensuring the supply of raw materials for the company’s core products.

In 2014, Wu was involved in the independent design of an automatic fermentation room at the Tea Science Institute and conducted comparative experiments. This work provided technical support for standardizing the production process of Dianhong tea and establishing a standardized production system. In 2016, he suggested that tea garden management should focus on quality improvement and cost optimization. He initially established a pest control system for the Tea Science Institute’s tea gardens, focusing on water resource control, pest control process management, and optimizing the selection of pesticides. In 2017, Wu focused on optimizing the entire tea garden management system through tea tree pruning, while also conducting in-depth exploration in fertilization management and pest control.

Wu has published papers summarizing his work, including “Brief Discussion on the Application of Mechanical Harvesting Technology in Fengqing Mass Tea Garden” and “Experimental Study on Grading Processing of Mechanically Harvested Tea in Fengqing Mass Tea Garden.” In 2012, he changed his work approach to streamline comprehensive management at the Tea Science Institute, striving to enhance its image. Due to his outstanding work performance and achievements, he was awarded the Excellent Employee Award in 2012.
