    Tobacco-specific nitrosamine (TSNA) accumulation during burley curing is probably driven by endophytic microbial anaerobic denitrification. This study investigates the effect of time of spraying a soil suspension onto greenhouse-grown plants that...

    University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA
    The accumulation of tobacco specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) in burley tobacco is affected by a number of interacting factors. Previous work by several researchers has indicated an initial increase in TSNA accumulation with increasing maturity at...

    Differences in TSNA accumulation between burley genotypes can often be attributed to differences in nicotine conversion and/or differences in amount of total alkaloids. However, several researchers have observed differences in TSNAs between certain...

    The effect of population density on TSNA accumulation in Burley tobacco

    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Plant & Soil Sciences, Lexington, KY, USA
    Lower alkaloids generally result in lower TSNAs, and high population tobacco generally has lower alkaloids than standard population tobacco. The objective of this study was to quantify the effect of population density on TSNAs, other nitrogenous...
