    Establishing application protocols for poultry litter and feather meal in organic Burley tobacco production

    SUCHOFF D.H.; VANN M.C.; FISHER L.R.; WHITLEY D.S.
    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 available ...

    Evaluations of rimsulfuron application timing and rate in flue-cured tobacco

    VANN M.C.; INMAN M.D.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Field studies were conducted from 2016 through 2018 to evaluate flue-cured tobacco response to rimsulfuron application timing and rate (17 and 34 g a.i. ha-1). Additionally, weed control was evaluated in combination with current recommended herbicide ...

    Organic suckercides: screening various compounds for efficacy and injury potential

    SUCHOFF D.H.; VANN M.C.; SHORT M.M.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Organically derived fatty alcohol products are useful for the control of tobacco axillary buds (suckers) and are greatly needed by commercial tobacco farmers. Recently, USDA-National Organic Program approval of these products has been scrutinized, leaving ...

    Lower leaf removal and nitrogen application programs for flue-cured tobacco production

    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.
    With a current global over-supply of flue-cured tobacco, tobacco producers in North Carolina have been encouraged to remove the lowermost leaves prior to harvest due to their low value in manufactured products. The objective of this research was to ...

    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 in ...

    Metabolic and transcriptomic shifts during tobacco leaf post-harvest senescence

    BOVET L.; HILFIKER A.; BATTEY J.; SIERRO N.; GOEPFERT S.
    PMI R&D, Philip Morris Products S.A., Neuchâtel, Switzerland
    Tobacco is harvested after plant flowering, when the leaf senescence is more or less visible depending on cultivars. Before the drying phase, current practices allow the senescence to proceed until the detached leaf becomes yellow. This yellowing phase is ...
