  • Rain, heat has affected tobacco quality

    Heavy rain during the 4th of July weekend has led to a number of problems in tobacco such as drowning, leaf scald, black shank, wilting and dying. On surviving tobacco, there may be a rapid development of spotting on lower leaves, weather flecking and severe scorching of bottom leaves.

    Before the rains came, there were already foliar symptoms of deficiencies of nutrients like nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus, which were directly related to poor root development resulting from generally wet soil conditions that had prevailed during the early season.
