    Effects of genotype and cultural practices on flue-cured tobacco growth, development, and chemistry

    VANN M.C.; CHEEK J.A.; MACHACEK J.L.; WHITLEY D.S.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    The reintroduction of proposed nicotine standards by the US-FDA warrants further investigations of selected tobacco genotypes and management strategies that may reduce concentrations of the metabolite. To quantify these effects, research was...
