    Chemically topping Burley tobacco

    RICHMOND M.D.(1); PEARCE R.C.(1); BAILEY W.A.(2)
    (1) University of Kentucky, Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, Lexington, KY, U.S.A.; (2) University of Kentucky Research and Education Center, Princeton, KY, U.S.A.
    The act of topping tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) involves the removal of the terminal bud or inflorescence of the tobacco plant. This practice ordinarily is accomplished by manually removing the top of each tobacco plant in an entire field, which is ...

    Preliminary evaluation of curing environment and TSNA accumulation within dark air-cured tobacco

    RICHMOND M.D.; BAILEY W.A.; PEARCE R.C.
    University of Kentucky Research & Education Center, 1205 Hopkinsville Street, Princeton, KY, USA
    Significant variability in cured leaf TSNA content is commonly observed when sampling within dark air-curing barns. This variability may be due to inconsistency in the curing environment within different areas of the barn. A graduate student study was ...

    How do agronomic managements affect Burley tobacco air-cured leaf yield and chemistry?

    ZOU Congming.; PEARCE R.C.; GROVE J.H.; ZELEZNIK J.M.; COYNE M.S.
    University of Kentucky, 1405 Veterans Drive (Office: 0319), Lexington, KY 40546, USA
    Individual agronomic management effects on burley tobacco air-cured leaf yield and chemistry have been well studied. However, the basic and common mechanism of these agronomic management’s effects, such as N fertilization rate, cropping and tillage style, ...

    Preliminary investigation of curing environment and TSNA accumulation within barns in dark air-cured tobacco

    RICHMOND M.D.; BAILEY W.A.; PEARCE R.C.
    University of Kentucky, Research and Education Center, Princeton, KY, U.S.A.
    A graduate student project was initiated in 2012 through support from a CORESTA Study Grant to evaluate correlation between curing microenvironments within designated areas of curing barns and TSNA accumulation. Experiments were conducted in barns near ...
