    Effects of polyethylene mulches on pest management and yield in organic flue-cured tobacco

    MACHANOFF C.A.; SUCHOFF D.H.; VANN M.C.; WOODLEY A.L.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Management of weed and insect pests in organic production of flue-cured tobacco is challenging due to lack of effective approved control options. Polyethylene plastic mulches are commonly used in vegetable and berry production to manage in-row weed...

    Impacts of conservation tillage and cover crop mulch on weed emergence and leaf yield and quality in organic flue-cured tobacco

    MACHANOFF C.A.; SUCHOFF D.H.; VANN M.C.; WOODLEY A.L.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Intensive tillage in flue-cured tobacco production contributes to soil erosion and reduced water-holding capacity of soils. Conservation tillage minimizes soil disturbance by planting a crop directly into biomass residue of overwintered cover crop...

    Winter cover crop management in the production of organic flue-cured tobacco

    WOODLEY A.L.; HAHN S.L.; VANN M.C.; OSMOND D.L.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    The production of organic flue-cured tobacco requires costly nitrogen (N) management strategies, intensive tillage and bedding, and repeated cultivation for bed maintenance and weed control. This study was conducted to determine if cover cropping...

    Impacts of lower-leaf removal timing, number, and nitrogen application to flue-cured tobacco

    VANN M.C.(1); FINCH C.E.(1); FISHER L.R.(1); WELLS R.(1); BROWN A.B.(2)
    (1) North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.; (2) North Carolina State University, Department of Agricultural & Economic Resources, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    The removal and exclusion of lower-stalk tobacco from harvest continues to be encouraged in North Carolina. Previous research efforts have been focused on the simultaneous practices of topping and leaf removal. Very little information has been...
