    THEME-SEER: Multidimensional exploratory technique to explore the generation process of smoke compounds

    BRY X.(1); VERRON T.(2); CAHOURS X.(2); TEILLET B.(2)
    (1) I3M, UM2, Montpellier, France; (2) SEITA, Imperial Tobacco Group, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    In 2011, we presented at the 2011 CORESTA SSPT Meeting (Graz) [1] a new approach to path modelling based on system extended multiple covariance criteria. We showed why THEME-SEER may be preferred to current methods using either criteria based on ...

    Using a structural model based on a class of generalized covariance criteria, to explore the generation process of smoke compounds

    BRY X.(1); REDONT P.(1); VERRON T.(2); CAHOURS X.(2)
    (1) I3M, UM2, Montpellier, France; (2) SEITA Imperial Tobacco Group, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Our aim is to explore a structural model: several variable groups describing the same units are assumed to be structured around latent dimensions that are linked together through a linear model that may have several equations. This type of model is ...

    A multiple covariance based method to explore relationships between Hoffmann analytes and several groups of physical and chemical cigarette parameters

    BRY X.; VERRON T.; CAZES P.; FIGUÈRES G.
    I3M Université Montpellier, Montpellier, France
    In this work, we studied 28 commercial Virginia and US blends described using various thematic variable groups. Our purpose was to explore the possibility of an explanatory linear model connecting structural dimensions of these groups. A group containing ...

    The prevention of TSWV attack in the Burley fields in Romania

    STANESCU V.; PAUNESCU A.D.; DIMA A.; PAUNESCU M.; BURCEA A.M.; SANISLAV N.
    Central Research Station for Tobacco Culture and Industrialization, Bucharest, Romania.
    The Burley cultivars are very sensitive to virosis, in general, and to TSWV, in particular.Yield and quality of the obtained tobacco largely depend on the prevention of this virus, and this is managed by the chemical control of Thrips tabaci Lind., the ...

    The influence of the physiologically active substances and of the natural bioregulators on tobacco seed, seedlings and plants

    DIMA A.; PAUNESCU A.D.; PAUNESCU M.; CIUPERCA A.; MILITARU D.C.
    Central Research Station for Tobacco Culture and Industrialization, Bucharest, Romania.
    The goal of the research was to improve the germination of tobacco seeds in order to obtain a healthy, vigorous, uniform seedling, ready to be transplanted in the shortest time. For the tobacco seed, cultivar Baragan 132, the following variants were used: ...

    New research concerning the production of tobacco seedlings in Romania using the float system with trays

    MILITARU D.C.; PAUNESCU A.D.; DIMA A.; COMAN E.
    Central Research Station for Tobacco Culture and Industrialization, Bucharest, Romania.
    The float system with trays was first tested in Romania in 1992, knowing its numerous advantages regarding the quality of the tobacco seedlings produced and the shortening of the obtaining period. After 1997, systematic research was conducted at the ...
