Plucking interval or Harvesting interval

When the oldest one or two generations are being plucked, it will take about 5-7 days (in tropical countries) for the next generations to come into the plucking stage. This time of 5-7 days between 2 consecutive harvestings is termed the “plucking round” or “plucking interval”. Scientifically, the plucking round is preferably the same as the “leaf period” or “shoot phyllochron”; the number of days taken for fully unfurling of leaf from the bud.
