Ordering/Casing Burley and Dark Tobacco - Post-Curing Management Practices

9/8/2022 (new)
Authors: Andy Bailey, Bob Pearce

Market preparation of burley and dark tobacco involves removing cured tobacco from the curing facilities (takedown), removing the stalks from the stick (bulking), removing cured leaves from tobacco stalks (stripping) and packaging for the market (baling). These processes can only be performed when cured leaves are sufficiently pliable to avoid breakage.

AGR-266

Chemical Topping of Burley Tobacco

6/17/2022 (new)
Authors: Andy Bailey, Bob Pearce

Pastures for sheep and goats are fertilized to ensure a reliable supply of energy, protein, and other nutrients for a long season of grazing. Management of plant nutrients maintains a balance of improved grasses and legumes and improves forage species competitiveness with many pasture weeds. The most important part of obtaining fertilizer recommendations is collecting a representative soil sample to send to the lab.

Burley and Dark Tobacco Production Guide, 2021-2022

12/9/2020 (major revision)
Authors: Andy Bailey, Ric Bessin, Lowell Bush, Ann Fisher, J.D. Green, Bob Miller, Bob Pearce, Emily Pfeufer, Edwin Ritchey, Wayne Sanderson, Will Snell

Under ideal conditions, growing a good crop of tobacco is relatively easy, but when conditions are challenging it takes good management skills and attention to detail to make tobacco a profitable crop. This publication is designed to provide the good manager with the latest information for the production of high yielding, good quality tobacco.

AGR-258

Production of Connecticut Broadleaf Cigar Wrapper Tobacco in Kentucky and Tennesse

9/29/2020 (new)
Authors: Andy Bailey, Bob Pearce

There has been recent interest from tobacco dealers in purchasing Connecticut Broadleaf tobacco produced in Kentucky and Tennessee. Connecticut Broadleaf has traditionally been grown in areas of the Connecticut River Valley in Connecticut and Massachusetts. However, decreased production in this area along with increased demand for natural leaf cigar wrappers has caused tobacco dealers to pursue other tobacco-producing areas for this type. At first glance, Connecticut Broadleaf tobacco resembles dark air-cured tobacco, but generally has enhanced leaf quality characteristics that can increase its potential value for use as cigar binders and wrappers.

Comparison of Herbicide Systems for Dark Fire-Cured Tobacco: Plant and Soil Sciences Research Report (vol. 3, no. 1, 2014)

9/8/2014 (new)
Authors: Andy Bailey, Bobby Hill, Tim Lax

Dark tobacco growers commonly ask which herbicide system has the least potential for crop injury and/or yield reduction and provides the most effective control of the weed spectrum typically encountered in western Kentucky and northwestern Tennessee tobacco fields. Due to the high value of dark tobacco, many growers use reduced rates of herbicides due to crop injury concerns, and often observe reduced weed control as a result. The objective of these experiments was to evaluate dark tobacco response and weed control where full rates of all available residual herbicide systems were used.

Effect of Tray Type and Tray Covering on Wicking Speed, Germination, and Spiral Rooting of Tobacco: Plant and Soil Sciences Research Report (vol. 1, no. 3, 2012)

1/31/2013 (new)
Authors: Andy Bailey

Poor tray wicking and spiral rooting continue to be recurring concerns in tobacco float systems. The objectives of the research discussed here were to compare media wicking speed in two types of tobacco float trays, and to evaluate the effect of fabric tray covering on tobacco seed germination and spiral rooting.

Double Crop Curing Dark Fired Tobacco

9/18/2007 (new)
Authors: Andy Bailey

Double crop curing is the practice of curing two crops of tobacco in the same barn and growing season. The practice of double crop curing has been utilized by some dark-fired tobacco growers for several years but has increased in recent years as growers have attempted to consolidate operations a nd incre a se efficienc y of production. Tobacco buying companies have started accepting the crop earlier than in the past to better accommodate this practice.
