Sri Lanka's tea production has dropped 10 percent to 22.4 million kilograms in February 2014 from a year earlier, and the March crop is also expected to be fall amid a drought, a tea brokerage has said.

In February the high grown harvest was down 16 percent, the medium grown harvest by 9 percent and the low grown harvest by 8 percent.

Up to February 2014 the total crop was down by half a million kilograms or 1.1 percent.

In the first two months of 2013 tea production surged to 48.4 million kilograms from 43.2 million a year earlier.
