    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Information on nutrient management in organic Burley tobacco is limited. Unlike conventional nitrogen (N) sources, which are readily available for plant use upon application, organic N fertilizers require microbial mineralization to become plant...

    Cured leaf residues following applications of fluopicolide, indoxacarb, and oxathiapiprolin to flue-cured tobacco

    VANN M.C.; INMAN M.D.; WHITLEY D.S.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Pesticide residues found on cured tobacco remain a large concern to the allied tobacco industry. To better quantify cured leaf residues, three active ingredients (fluopicolide, indoxacarb, and oxathiapiprolin) were applied to flue-cured tobacco grown...

    Soil applications of maleic hydrazide do not control tobacco axillary bud growth

    VANN M.C.; WHITLEY D.S.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Increased focus on residues of the plant growth regulator Maleic Hydrazide (MH) have prohibited some U.S. producers from applying the suckercide to control tobacco axillary buds. As such, an alternative to the conventional foliar application of the...
