    Heavy metals content in soil and dry tobacco leaves in Croatia

    HUSNJAK S.; TURSIC I.; BOIC M.; VRHOVEC D.; ZALAC S.; KOZUMPLIK V.
    University of Zagreb, Faculty of Agriculture, Soil Science Dept., Agricultural Faculty University, Zagreb, Croatia
    Systematic field and laboratory studies on soil and plants were conducted in the tobacco growing regions of Croatia from 2006 to 2008. The aim was to get better insight into the soil status and its influence on tobacco quality. In this paper contents of ...

    Heavy metal content in soil and in tobacco leaf in Croatia

    HUSNJAK S.; ŽALAC S.; BOIC M.; TURŠIC I.; VRHOVEC D.; KOZUMPLIK V.
    University of Zagreb, Faculty of Agriculture, Croatia
    In Croatia tobacco is produced on soils of different physical and chemical characteristics, which has a direct reflection on tobacco quality. For this reason, systematic field and laboratory investigations of soil and plant material were conducted in the ...

    Agronomic performance of Croatian flue-cured tobacco cultivars under two planting densities

    BUKAN M.; BOIC M.; BUDIMIR A.; BOLARIC S.; KOZUMPLIK V.
    University of Zagreb, Faculty of Agriculture, Dept. of Plant Breeding, Genetics, Biometrics and Experimentation, Zagreb, Croatia
    In Croatia improvement of flue-cured tobacco yield and quality has been achieved through development of new cultivars and adjustment of growing practices. The tobacco is commonly grown at planting density of about 22,000 plants per ha. Lower number of ...

    Feature selection from near infrared spectra using genetic algorithms for tobacco blend recognition

    FIGUERES G.; DE SOUZA S.; REYNES C.; SABATIER R.; VIDAL B.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy has proved to be very useful for predicting concentrations of chemical compounds in tobacco, classification or pattern recognition of cigarette blends. The resulting measurement of a sample is a whole reflectance ...

    How representative of the human smoking behaviour would be the new alternative smoking regimes? A first attempt of assessment

    MARCHAND V.; TESSIER C.; DUMERY B.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    The ISO or FTC smoking conditions (35 mL- 2 s puffs, 1 puff per minute) have been more and more criticized during the last decade, especially because they would not reflect the human smoking behaviour. Their main objective was not to predict the exact ...

    A mixture experimental design with six variables and the effects on smoke components:1 - Presentation of this experimental design and of some initial results on physical characteristics of cigarettes and blends

    VIDAL B.; FIGUERES G.; BIESSE J.P.; BREGEON B.; LOUVET F.; MUZELLEC L.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    The objective of this paper is to examine the effects of six tobacco components on the chemical and physical characteristics of blends and cigarettes and particularly on the mainstream smoke yields. First of all, we will develop the philosophy of this ...

    A mixture experimental design with 6 variables and the effects on smoke components:2 - Hoffmann analytes behaviour through a mixture experimental design

    FIGUERES G.; VIDAL B.; BIESSE J.P.; BREGEON B.; LOUVET F.; MUZELLEC L.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Today in the tobacco industry, one of the main scientific challenges is to understand the formation of some smoke compounds ("Hoffmann analytes"). For several years, work has been conducted in order to know the influence of cigarette design ...
