      <Abstract>Tea is a drink widely consumed all over the world. Tea growing is the most important source of income in the Eastern Black Sea region of Turkey. After many years of being harvested by hand, tea began being harvested by machine, giving rise to an increase in accidents involving the extremities. A retrospective investigation of 14 patients attending our university hospital due to tea-cutting machine accidents between January and December 2011 showed an age distribution of 19 to 71, and that 78.6% were male. The greatest number of cases was determined in September. Left lower extremities were frequently injured as a result of trauma (71.4%), with broken bones and severed tendons being observed in four of these (28.6%). While agricultural machines used in the harvesting and pruning back of tea raise the speed of production, they also lead to a rise in agricultural accidents. This study was intended to determine the severe injuries which such machinery can cause.</Abstract>
