Fungicide Guide for Burley and Dark Tobacco, 2016
2/24/2016 (minor revision)

The number of fungicides that are registered for use on tobacco in Kentucky is relatively small in comparison to the large array of products available to producers of other crops. Although growers have a limited number of fungicides from which to choose, those that are available are effective against most of the major diseases of roots, stems, and foliage. | PPFS-AG-T-8

Maintaining the Efficacy of Foliar Fungicides for Tobacco Disease Management
7/1/2015 (new)

Management of resistance to fungicides is based on alternating the use of particular modes of action, or FRAC groups, which essentially presents multiple different challenges to the fungal population. Overall, fungi that are naturally resistant to a mode of action are very rare in the environment. Challenging a population with multiple different modes of action will reduce the chance of developing widespread resistance, which will prolong the efficacy of these chemicals. | PPFS-AG-T-5

Introductory Safety Training for Tobacco Workers
7/25/2012 (new)

This safety bulletin is intended to offer introductory safety training to tobacco workers in conjunction with a farm walk-around. It was written as if you and your workers are standing in or around the object currently being discussed, e.g., a tractor, with you or a designated assistant pointing out the various safety issues listed in the bulletin. It is not meant to be used as a stand-alone bulletin, especially just in a room, unless you have already gone through the walk-around and are reviewing points or having a discussion. It must be used out by the barn, equipment, or other subject being discussed. | ID-204

Blackleg of Tobacco
6/1/2011 (new)

Blackleg becomes a concern whenever Kentucky experiences extended periods of warm, wet, overcast weather in the spring. This disease, also referred to as bacterial soft rot, is one of the most serious problems likely to be encountered on tobacco seedlings. Blackleg has the potential for destroying large numbers of plants in a relatively short period of time. As with other diseases in the float system, proper management goes a long way in preventing problems with blackleg. | PPFS-AG-T-4

Collar Rot in the Tobacco Float System
5/1/2011 (new)

Collar rot can be found in tobacco float beds each year in Kentucky; it causes a great deal of concern when it makes its appearance. Severe losses to this disease are rare, but they can occur if care is not taken to minimize the risk of disease development and prevent further spread after it does appear. | PPFS-AG-T-3

Pythium Root Rot in Tobacco Float Systems
5/1/2011 (new)

Pythium root rot is the most common disease found in tobacco float beds in Kentucky; it can cause severe losses or delays in transplanting. Damage caused by this disease can be minimized through a combination of sound management practices and timely application of fungicide. | PPFS-AG-T-1

Pallet Rack Structures for Curing Burley Tobacco

Double Crop Curing Dark Fired Tobacco
9/18/2007 (new)

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. | AGR-196
